Virtual Dartmouth Entrepreneurs Forum 2020
Sep 9 thru Oct 1
About this Event
The Dartmouth Entrepreneurs Forum, originally scheduled for September 17, 2020 in San Francisco, will now be a month of entrepreneurship, encompassing a series of virtual events as an exciting kickoff to the academic year. There will be multiple virtual events each week, that will include keynote and fire side chats, panel conversations, discussion groups, and office hours between alumni mentors and startup founders.
When placing your ticket order, select each session you plan to attend. You will receive a separate email for each session with the meeting link. Several of the offerings are not finalized so you will see a date and time with TENTATIVE listed. If this session is of interest to you, please register. Once the session is confirmed, you will receive a meeting link confirmation.
There will be no charge for these events.
We look forward to having you join us!
The Schedule is below:
Throughout her career in law, business, and public service, Valerie Jarrett was often the only woman—particularly the only African American woman—in the room. Jarrett, the longest-serving senior advisor to President Barack Obama, will join Dean Matthew Slaughter in a conversation about leadership lessons presented in collaboration with the Center for Business, Government and Society. Jarrett will share lessons learned during her remarkable journey from childhood in Iran to the White House and beyond. Through personal stories, Jarrett offers an optimistic view on the importance of leadership and the responsibilities of citizenship in the twenty-first century.
Date: Wednesday, September 30
Time: 12:00–1:00 p.m. ET
Log-in details will be sent prior to the virtual program.

Artificial Intelligence: Detecting Intention and Deception
Artificial intelligence (AI) continues to enhance our problem-solving ability in areas such as cybersecurity, energy costs, healthcare, and more. An area of Professor Eugene Santos' research explores AI's predictability on human factors such as decision making, goals, reward structures, and deception. To better understand this AI needs intentions as intent drives behavior and decision-making.
Join Professor Santos for a virtual journey exploring AI and its intricacies. Can computers identify intent? Should AI be allowed to deceive? Who would you allow to command a war: a toddler or AI? How can 'computational intent' provide AI the guardrails it needs? Because without them AI, can “happily” be “weird,” which at best is funny, but at worst disastrous.

Dartmouth and regional experts will explore the global impact of the upcoming U.S. presidential election. How will the outcome influence international relations, global security, and foreign policy? Learn the ways the pandemic and civil unrest are impacting campaigning and voting.
The evening begins with a discussion on the global impact of the election with Dean Lacy, professor of government at Dartmouth; Lisa Baldez, Professor of Government and Latin American, Latino, and Caribbean Studies; and Elizabeth Cascio, Associate Professor of Economics specializing in education, public economics, and labor economics. This will be followed by a live panel discussion with regional experts discussing how the U.S. presidential election might affect trade for North and Latin America.
Speakers at each regional event will be available to answer any of your questions live after the program followed by a reception.
