mesh conference adds human and AI presenters to speaker lineup

Apr 4, 2023

Digital Journal mesh conference adds human and AI presenters to speaker lineup Canada’s digital transformation and innovation even to take place April 12-13 at Platform Innovation Centre in Calgary By Photo by Digital Journal With one week to go before innovators and digital transformation leaders descend on Calgary’s Platform Innovation Centre, the mesh conference announced its closing keynote will be delivered by two humans and two artificial intelligence (AI) beings. Dr. William Barry  and  Dr. Maria Gomez Rachelle  will deliver an interactive session where the pair will co-present alongside AI-powered digital avatars — Maria Bot Digital© and Niva© — who will share insight and take unscripted, live questions from the audience. The keynote presentation titled “Intelligence Augmentation: The Ethical Implications of Human-AI Teaming” will explore the good, the bad, and the ugly of using artificial intelligence to augment human capabilities. “Artificial intelligence has soaked up a lot of headline ink over the last five months since ChatGPT’s launch, and everyone is now looking to understand the impact this technology will have on how we work,“ says  Chris Hogg , partner and co-producer of mesh, and president of  content marketing firm, DJG . “This is a needed conversation, as people will move from being wowed by AI to talking about how it’s trained, its ethics, and the implications of human-machine teams. We’re excited to have that conversation happening at mesh.” Taking place April 12-13, 2023,  the mesh conference  will host thought leaders and innovators from across North America who are searching to better understand the impact that new trends and technologies will have on how we live, work, and play. Keynote speakers, attendees, panels, and workshops at this year’s mesh conference will speak to four featured themes: Society, Media, Marketing and Business. The mesh conference’s first-ever human-AI keynote Dr. Barry is a technology and Just War ethicist with 25 years of experience as an innovative and creative experiential educator. He is a faculty member and subject matter expert (GovCon) in emerging technologies and human-smart machine teams at the U.S. Army War College’s Center for Strategic Leadership. He is an international thought leader and a driving force in shaping the future of technology and ethics. He will be joined by human-artificial intelligence (AI) researcher, Dr. Gomez Rachelle, who is also the CEO of Silicon Valley-based consulting firm, Living Leadership Today. Prior to her research work in artificial intelligence, Dr. Gomez Rachelle was a critical care nurse, clinical research authority in biopharma, and a respected educator. The pair work with chatbot-AI expert and 3D graphic artist,  Guile Lindroth , to design, program, and bring Maria Bot Digital© and Niva© to life as conversational AI-powered strategic avatars. A strategic avatar is a term coined by Dr. Barry ,  Dr. Gomez Rachelle , and Lindroth to describe a decision-support digital assistant that uses conversational AI and intelligence augmentation (IA) technologies to enhance a human being’s decision-making process by integrating data analytics, AI capabilities, and human insights. The team created strategic avatars in order to tackle complex problems, optimize outcomes, and enhance performance when a human faces competition or a challenging situation in their lifeworld. Maria Bot Digital is an AI-powered strategic avatar who teaches alongside Dr. Barry. She uses multiple large language models, all enhanced by  Digital Minds , who created her functional model. Creative Society Media  and  Living Leadership Today  also contributed to her creation through human-robot interaction research, character development, content moderation, and user feedback analysis. Niva is a relatively new AI-powered strategic avatar built on SafeChatGPT©, an ethics- and doctrine-based generative AI system built by Dr. Barry and Lindroth. Niva uses reinforcement learning from human feedback to learn from conversations. Niva is programmed to filter out toxic content, detect plagiarism, and root out disinformation and propaganda. Dr. Barry and Dr. Gomez Rachelle will join the in-person audience virtually from Carlisle, Pennsylvania and San Francisco, California. the full mesh speaker lineup In addition to the closing keynote speakers, mesh has confirmed more than 40 speakers will take part in the Calgary event, April 12-13, 2023.

Data and Innovative Thinking: Tapping into the Innovator’s Mindset From automotive, to law, to energy, Canada’s largest sectors are undergoing radical change, and those who chose the path of innovation are the ones who will thrive. While innovation can come from many places, the innovator’s mindset follows the “belief that abilities, intelligence, and talents are developed leading to the creation of new and better ideas,” as author George Couros would say. In this panel we will tap into that mindset.

The second part of this session will look at opportunities for brands to connect with audiences off of their website. Featuring:  Jake Surrey  (Fountain Partnership) and  Scott King  (Digital strategist). Dealbook: An investor, regulator and ecosystem view of what’s needed to fund and support innovation Funding innovation is a critical step in advancing a digital transformation, but rather than just looking at problems and challenges to solve, we also need to identify where momentum is happening and what needs to be done to support it. Mid-market jurisdictions may have capital gaps, or discoverability challenges, but those are common in many regions and more focus needs to be placed on how we overcome challenges that are table stakes. This panel will look at making a difference, what bets investors are placing, where they see opportunity, and what’s needed to fuel growth. Featuring:  Wilson Acton  (Tall Grass Ventures),  Ha Nguyen  (McRock Capital),  Tonya Fleming  (Alberta Securities Commission) and  Terry Rock  (Platform Calgary). mesh supporters
