Meredith from Simply Secure writes, "Artificial Intelligence is already with us, and the White House and New York University's Information Law Institute are hosting a major public symposium to face what the social and economic impacts might be. AI Now, happening July 7th in New York City, will address the real world impacts of AI systems in the next next 5-10 years."

The event will feature a range of domain experts on the impact of AI across four key themes: social inequality, labor, healthcare, and ethics.

Austin Jr., Deputy Assistant to the President for Urban Affairs, Justice, and Opportunity, Domestic Policy Council, White House; R. David Edelman, Special Assistant to the President for Economic and Technology Policy, National Economic Council; and Nicole Wong, former Deputy U.S Chief Technology Officer for the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.
