The Rena Dinner II

An exclusive dinner discussion for Senior Executives from prominent firms in Washington, DC

Balancing Humans and Machines


Artificial intelligence is now a key ingredient in business development. In fact, in a survey conducted by Pegasystems, 100% of top-performing companies are currently using AI.

AI and automation were initially considered a threat to the human workforce. Now, people have been using AI to simplify and optimize their work, leading to increased productivity and efficiency. There is now a codependence between humans and machine. But with all these technologies at the tip of our fingers, undeniably making work and life more comfortable, how much human interaction is really needed to grow a business?

We discussed:

  • How far can AI go?
  • How do we separate hype from sustainability?
  • Where do humans thrive where machines cannot?
