About This Meeting

On Monday, February 5, 2018, U.S. Senator Gary Peters addressed the Detroit Economic Club on Michigan’s opportunity to become a hub for transformative technologies, including self-driving vehicles, artificial intelligence, and robotics, and the implications these technologies will have on our state’s economic future.

With these changes comes new responsibilities for both business and community leaders Peters says, “If we are going to keep Michigan at the forefront of the technological future, we must develop and retain highly skilled talent.”

Peters also argued that it is our responsibility as a nation that everyone benefits from increase in productivity that the AI revolution promises. “In my mind, change is only disruptive if it is happening to you. If you are leading the change, it becomes transformational.”
