The Fundamentals of Artificial Intelligence for Legal and Business Professionals

About the film
Are you ready for the future? Artificial intelligence is developing at a rapid pace, stealthily working its way into every industry. From robot surgeons to elaborate works of art, AI has the potential to replace one-third of all jobs by 2030. In the engrossing More Human Than Human, world-leading AI experts and robot pioneers like Boston Dynamics uncover hopeful technological advances in medicine and the environment while shedding light on the dangerous impact AI could have on the entire human race. Using clips from seminal sci-fi films as a guide, filmmakers Tommy Pallotta and Femke Wolting take us around the globe, crafting a rich and detailed examination of the infinite possibilities that are destined to become our reality.

Followed by an expert panel discussion that will provide an overview of current and upcoming AI technology innovation and will address the growing impact of algorithms, automated decision-making, and other AI innovations on the work of legal and business professionals.
