Do Good Days Lunch & Learn April 25: What's April Without AI?

Few words in our everyday lives strike more fear than "Artificial Intelligence" (or AI for short). For some, AI is a valuable tool that helps work be more efficient. For others, AI is feared as a replacement for positions in the workforce. In this session, we'll explore the myths, the truths, the benefits, and the challenges of working with AI in non-profit organizations. 

Join us for a lunch and learn Thursday, April 25 from 11:30 - 1:00 hosted by the Community Foundation for Western Iowa with speaker Dr. AnnMarie Marlier.
