Harnessing AI: Tools for Urban Leaders
November 13 - 15, 2023
Artificial Intelligence is reshaping our world.
It can help efficiently deliver social services, identify workforce trends and necessary skills, and provide localized climate predictions. But without ethical and transparent use, AI can easily exacerbate inequalities, intensify surveillance, and imperil democracy.
Now, it’s incumbent upon leaders at all levels to intentionally leverage AI’s potential for the good of society and the planet. This type of impactful leadership is only possible when great minds are converging to share experiences and build a collaborative future.
That’s why, from November 13-15, 2023, the Pritzker Forum on Global Cities will host "Harnessing AI: Tools for Urban Leaders."
Do not miss this opportunity to build a global community and connect with policymakers, practitioners, and private sector stakeholders. Join us as we explore cities where AI is already working for the common good, and capture the lessons learned along the way.
After a digital hiatus, we are delighted to welcome you back to Chicago, November 13 - 15, 2023, for three days of networking, discussions, and workshops on "Harnessing AI: Tools for Urban Leaders."
The roundtable is a private event for mayors to connect and share experiences.
