How To Academy presents…How to Talk to Robots – A Girl’s Guide To A Future Dominated by AI | Tabitha Goldstaub in conversation with Sinead

It’s time to demystify the daunting, male-dominated world of artificial Intelligence. Tech entrepreneur Tabitha Goldstaub is here to make sure AI works for us – not us for it.

AI is everywhere. From tracking your spending habits, to creating the latest filter on Instagram to job applications, AI is playing a part in how we all work, live and play. And so, the risk of biased technology is real.

In conversation with New York based model and futurist Sinead Bovell, tech entrepreneur and chair of the UK Government AI Council Tabitha Goldstaub will break down the barriers and offer a straightforward introduction to the world of Artificial Intelligence.

Wherever you are in life and whatever you do, AI is inescapable. Now is the time to make sense of this new world – and use your knowledge to successfully navigate the future.
