He has many years of extensive consulting experience working for a wide variety of financial institutions focusing on the documentation, design, model development, implementation, calibration, and validation of financial crime systems. Full Bio Link: https://ai-supremacy.com/authors/ More About AI Supremacy: From globalization to jobs, financial services to the role of governments, the nexus with cyber risk to spying, and from China’s quest to international relations, Wagner & Furst have delved deeply into the subject matter. The race for AI supremacy is about anticipation, adopting the right mind set, and having the right resources, a futuristic orientation, and the ability to execute. While few organizations and governments have achieved the right mix to lead in the race for AI supremacy, those that have already possess a substantial lead. Those that have not are simply falling further and further behind. Can those that are not already in the race, get in the race with any realistic hope of catching up? Can those who are already in the race ever catch up with the leaders? Who will win in the end? Should AI be feared or embraced? These are among the many questions Wagner and Furst explore in this enticing book. Admission is $8 (plus Eventbrite service chg) which covers light snacks and non-alcoholic refreshments. Our WeWork venue holds about 40 seats, more if some of us stand. Doors open at 6 and talk starts about 6:30 with Q&A following. We end by 8pm.
