Join us for a conversation with Yann LeCun and Andrew Ng as they discuss the proposal of a 6-month moratorium on generative AI.

Hear from these AI luminaries on how they see the proposal’s impact on the industry and some of the big questions it brings up.

Andrew and Yann will discuss:

  • What were the premises about AI underlying the proposal?
  • What are the problems with the proposal?
  • How would this affect AI businesses?
  • What are the worthwhile concerns about AI, and how can we address them?

This will be a candid conversation you don’t want to miss! Yann and Andrew will also be taking live questions from the audience via Slido.


Check out Andrew Ng’s Twitter for more thoughts on the AI pause.
