Fortune Brainstorm A.I. will bring together the top executives from the world’s biggest tech companies, thought leaders, and innovators to explore key issues shaping the A.I. revolution. The intimate scale of Brainstorm A.I. creates a unique opportunity to forge relationships with the world’s most influential tech leaders and gain insights into the most important trends facing this new frontier. This year’s program, presented in association with Accenture, will feature intimate one-on-one conversations, engaging panel discussions, and lively roundtable sessions–all designed to address how A.I. is changing the ways we do business.

Among the topics we’ll explore:
• How is A.I. transforming traditional industries and legacy companies?
• How are A.I.-powered devices and robots disrupting old models of work?
• In what ways can A.I. be deployed to better recruit talent, retain customers, detect security risks, and identify high-yield investments?
• How have A.I. technologies—from R&D to vaccine creation, access, and delivery—improved COVID-19 outcomes?
• What are the ethical boundaries and legal challenges facing A.I.?

We’ll also spotlight what the biggest tech companies are already doing and why those applications may or may not help other businesses down the road. Please check back for ongoing program updates.

Fortune is following guidance issued by local authorities and the CDC (including local mask mandates), and is taking several additional steps to prioritize participants’ health and safety. Entry requirements include digital proof of full vaccination (submitted through Health Pass by CLEAR) as well as a negative COVID-19 rapid antigen or PCR test result, from a test taken within 72 hours of the start of event. We will announce any other specific guidelines in advance of the event.

Tuesday 9 Nov, 2021
9 - 9:15 AM
A.I. IN THE ERA OF COMPRESSED TRANSFORMATION

Julie Sweet, Chief Executive Officer, Accenture

9:15 - 9:40 AM
WHICH A.I. IS BEST FOR YOU? TOP INVESTORS TELL ALL

With so much hype around A.I. and so many vendors offering A.I.-powered solutions, cutting through the marketing spin to determine which investments will really pay off is challenging—and nerve wracking. We ask some world-class investors to break down how the pros make these difficult calls.

9:40 - 10:00 AM
A.I. AND YOUR HARD-EARNED MONEY

Financial services firms are betting big on A.I. to help manage your money. We’ll explore how the digital transformation of these organizations is improving client service and experience, streamlining back-end processes, and bolstering security.

10 - 10:30 AM
HUMAN + MACHINE: THERE WILL BE ROBOTS

A.I.-powered robots are here. But are we really ready for them? A look at the state-of-play, including the push for supercomputers and robots to work alongside humans, and the impact of these new technologies on your workplace and on society.

EVERYTHING IS PERSONAL

These tech-savvy hotshots were born in the digital era and were thinking about A.I. long before the rest of the business world caught on to the trend. But just like every company operating amid COVID-19, they’ve spent the past 18 months ensuring that their machine learning systems can adapt to how humans live and work. How will A.I. evolve as we demand more and more customized experiences from the tech we choose to use?

11:20 - 11:45 AM
AUTONOMY: WHEN IS MY SELF DRIVING CAR REALLY ARRIVING?
