AI and ChatGPT – Rowland’s Corporate Affairs Webinar


Artificial intelligence, though not a new technology, has leapt into our mainstream discussions and consciousness with the release of new generative AI programs, such the launch of ChatGPT in November last year.

AI is the fastest growing tech sector in the world, and PWC estimates it will add $15.7 trillion to the global economy by 2030. As of January this year, ChatGPT had 100 million monthly users, making it the fastest growing consumer App in history. The technology has had such momentum and acceleration over the years that experts estimate there have been five years’ worth of tech advancements in the past 12 months.

In fact, technology’s revolution is so rapid that the technology spoken about today may not be relevant within a week!

In Rowland’s Corporate Affairs Webinar, we asked our expert panel to unpack and explore the potential impacts, opportunities and risks that ChatGPT, and new AI technology in general, can have for their respective sectors.


Our panellists discussed these considerations and answered two pressing questions:
  • How is AI impacting your profession and the sectors you are working in? Are you already embracing this type of technology?
  • From each of your perspectives, what are the threats, opportunities, benefits, and limitations of ChatGPT and other AI tools? What is the potential for AI to change the future of how we work?
