About This Event

Imagine interacting with a learning program that is personalized just for you based on the skills you didn't even know you wanted to focus on. Or having access to data that helps you create a world-class program in half the time as it did a year ago. This is all within reach with tools like AI, VR, and ChatGPT; but is the potential of these technologies being fully realized in the non-tech space? 

Please join us for this exciting panel discussion where we will flex our "future readiness" muscle and explore how these cutting-edge tools are being applied in the world of Learning, Talent Development, and HR.
