About the Event
Are algorithms our new bosses? This month we are hosting Dr. Lior Zalmanson, a technology researcher at the Tel Aviv University, specializing in Digital Culture and the Information Society. We will learn how AI and sophisticated algorithms are already replacing human managers in large companies such as Uber and Wolt, and how this trend affects both the work culture, and human society in general. What does this mean for employees, and how does it affect our feelings of freedom, humanness and self respect? Are algorithms taking over the world?
Join us for a fascinating lecture, accompanied as usual by great networking with Haifa’s tech crowd, and free beers and snacks sponsored by Intel!
See you there,
The Haifa BeerTech Team.
