AI is transforming the workplace and many employers are looking to AI solutions for productivity, automation and workflow improvements. Emerging talent, like co-op students, understand that AI will be integral to their careers. They actively learn how to use AI as a teammate and partner in their tasks.

They’ll share their experiences and offer strategies for how co-op students can help your organization embrace AI.
