2020 THEME:

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

The 41st McMaster World Congress will highlight the theme of Artificial Intelligence.

AI is thought to represent not only a symbolic system of human thought, but a new era in human life. Whether we are aware of it or not, it is beginning to influence our global society. It is therefore imperative to understand its process, and implications, for our everyday lives. The world of Artificial Intelligence can be connected to multiple fields and industries. Moreover, this self learning, adaptive technology can be described as the future of our species, opening new doors and inspiring innovation in an ever-changing world.

Don’t miss your chance to witness enlightening presentations that bring forth many different management perspectives regarding AI technology. Last year’s event was a great success, with over 3,000 student delegates attending 13 sessions. We expect an even more popular event with this exciting theme.
