“Learning more about AI [and] having terms explained in a more accessible way [was the most valuable]. Having imagination encouraged was also very useful and valuable in the exercises—helped to realize how AI is/will be used and why we need to prepare.”
“Meeting and brainstorming with other attendees [was the most valuable part of the day]. Lots of interesting perspectives regarding AI and other topics that I can take back to the workplace.”
