The Next AI: A Conversation with Hod Lipson
Artificial Intelligence and Robotics technologies have been making grand strides over the past few years, outperforming humans in tasks once thought to be impossible to automate. Machines can now understand video and interpret language with unprecedented reliability. Cars can drive themselves and machines outperform doctors in medical diagnostics. AI can generate creative art and engineering blueprints. But where will this technology go next, and how far can it reach? This talk will take a deep dive into what is driving AI, how to use it, and how anticipate its future as it unfolds in six waves.
