UKnightedXP will be at Pensacon 2023 to provide key insights into the future of AI (“Artificial Intelligence”) as part of its ongoing mission to advance the world through education, gaming, and charity.
With its recent rise in popularity, AI is becoming a mainstay in the education and military complexes due to software such as ChatGPT, a program that will write an essay paper based on a few prompts, or solve a tactical issue with a few short clicks of a mouse. “Increasing interest in AI means soon every industry will be attempting to implement it into their day-to-day,” said Mitch Reed, President and CEO of UKnightedXP. “We are positioned on the leading edge of the incoming wave of AI implementation and a leader of AI in education.”
Pensacon, held February 24-26, 2023, is a place where people come to meet celebrities and learn about new advances in technology. Celebrities, artists, and businesses also showcase their work and provide entertainment for event-goers. “We are excited to have UKnightedXP here at Pensacon this year,” said Stephen Wise, Programming Director of Pensacon, “Their knowledge of advancements in technology, and especially AI, will be of great interest to eventgoers!”
