What is AI and how will it shape our future?

Chances are that the more you hear about artificial intelligence (AI), the more questions you have about this emerging technology. Whether you’re an educator or just curious about AI, we’re here to help.
The Tech will be hosting events, creating educational resources, and more. We believe that when everyone feels empowered to use and understand a new technology, then the future that technology creates will be better for all of us.
