WPU to Hold Inaugural Worldview Forum


William Penn University is creating a forum for our community to exchange information about important social concerns of today.

The inaugural Worldview Forum will be a discussion between industry and educational professionals on the many impacts of Artificial Intelligence (AI), including the short and long-term implications of AI. The forum is not a debate between parties. Instead, the panel will be posed questions that engage the listener to hear what is taking place in education and industry. Later in the evening, the presenters will be given a response time to answer audience-submitted questions.

On Wednesday, March 20, at 7:00 p.m. join the commmunity at the George Daily Auditorium for an evening of engagement.

Our distinguished speakers understand and embrace the critical thinking focus of this event for not only students but the community.

Andrew Nieuwsma, Staff Engineer and Senior Manager at Hewlett Packard Enterprise will serve as the moderator for the evening. Andrew is a 2012 graduate of William Penn. The panelists will include: Dr. Andrew Stevens, Director of Data Science for Walmart Global Tech, a 2007 graduate of WPU; Dr. Martin Roth, who co-led the creation of the AI major at Drake University; and Dr. Barrett Thomas, Professor for the Tippie College of Business at the University of Iowa.

Prior to the event on March 20, Joe Hollis (Graduate Research Assistant, Iowa State University), Dr. Andrew Stevens, and members of the Walmart Global Tech team will visit classrooms to present to students and teach them about the benefits and challenges of artificial intelligence.
