  • How are leading firms embracing technology to enable better collaboration and communication?
  • What are some of the pitfalls and issues to consider when implementing new CommTech and AI?
  • How are algorithms shaping the future of work and  stakeholder relations and what are the organisational, ethical, reputational and communicative considerations to take into account?
     

Alexander Buhmann will share insights from recent research on the pitfalls and ethical implications of algorithms and AI for the communication function.
