Join us for good food and stimulating conversation as we welcome Dr. David Bray, a leading expert on the impact of Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Intelligence (humans and machines working together) on organizations, communities and societies. Enjoy a private dinner at Kitchen by Brad Smoliak, a culinary studio in downtown Edmonton.

The night promises enlightening conversations as David facilitates a round table discussion on the implications of both artificial and augmented intelligence on the nature of work, leadership, and empowering your employees.  We will also discuss the impacts of these trends on our communities and societies at-large. The interactive discussion will include both strategies and examples of how each of us can be positive #ChangeAgents and help lead the way courageously in our period of rapid change.

Topics will include:

  • pairing humans with machines to encourage “augmented intelligence” where the strengths of both are amplified
  • how organizations can become learning, adaptive, and resilient
  • the critical role Boards play in taking advantage of powerful new technologies such as AI and how governance professionals can ensure the Board has the right information to facilitate strategic discussions around AI

Dr. David A. Bray has served in a variety of leadership roles in turbulent environments, including bioterrorism preparedness and response from 2000-2005, time on the ground in Afghanistan in 2009, serving as the non-partisan Executive Director for a bipartisan National Commission on R&D, and providing leadership as a non-partisan federal agency Senior Executive. He was named one of the top “24 Americans Who Are Changing the World” under 40 by Business Insider. He was also named a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum for 2016-2021. Since 2017, David has served as Executive Director for the People-Centered Internet coalition co-founded by Vint Cerf and focused on providing support and expertise for community-focused projects that measurably improve people’s lives using the Internet.

David’s passions include the Future of Work, Future of Governance, and the Future of Augmented living learning communities that maintain a human focus on collaboration, pluralism, and individual choices. He currently serves on advisory Boards and provides strategy to start-ups espousing human-centric principles regarding collaboration, technology, and decision-making in turbulent, challenging environments. He also serves on Oxford Social Data Science Advisory Board at the University of Oxford and is a Senior Fellow with the Institute for Human-Machine Cognition.
