Technology and Entrepreneurship summit at NSU focuses on AI in the workplace

ABERDEEN, SD (Dakota News Now) – Northern State University connected technology with entrepreneurship in the Aberdeen community at a brand new summit Wednesday afternoon.

The event, which took place at the Johnson Fine Arts Center, featured twenty speakers from various industries to help spread the word about how AI will be handled in the labor industry.

“This will be the first generation that will be thrown into the workplace with AI coming on board in full force,” said AI advisor Dr. Radhika Dirks. “More than that, in just a few years, their lives will be so different because AI is no longer just about work, it’s in every aspect of life.”

This is the first event to be held at NSU’s new Innovation and Startup Center, which opened last year to build a rural startup ecosystem to create more digital jobs in Northeast South Dakota.
