The Big Nine: The Future of AI

The future of artificial intelligence—and by extension, the future of humanity—is predominantly controlled by just nine companies, six in the US and three in China. These “big nine” are funding the majority of AI research, and control most of the networks, that will mine our data in ways that aren’t transparent or observable to us. At the BRITE ’19 Conference, Quantitative Futurist Amy Webb (Author, the Big Nine; Founder, Future Today Institute) offers a snapshot of our plausible futures living with AI, along with solutions for how to prevent the AI pitfalls that are on the horizon.

The BRITE conference on brands, innovation and technology is presented yearly by the Center on Global Brand Leadership at Columbia Business School.
