Event description

Artificial Intelligence: The Journey So Far, and The World in 2030

Artificial intelligence is already moving from science fiction to reality, and Canadian scientists are leading the way. Canada was the first country in the world to develop a “national AI strategy.” Kevin Leyton-Brown, Director of UBC’s Centre for Artificial Intelligence Decision-making and Action (CAIDA) will:  

   1) Describe the scientific journey that has brought us to this point,  

   2) Explain some of the core ideas that make modern AI technologies work, and  

   3) Indulge in some educated speculation about how AI will impact our lives a decade from now.
