At the core of CMU is the adoption of Integrated Intelligence, seamless interfaces with human AI to improve the lives of people everywhere. In Shaping the Future for Much Better Overall Human life, Manuela Veloso, Ken Goldberg, and Thanassis Rikakis will address four main questions:
How will seamless integration of digital, cyber information, physical artifacts, people and nature improve our world?
While technology developments are driven by curiosity, how will advances in technology lead to a better human functional life?
Given that human life is not only functional in terms of health, emotions, and creativity, how do we see technology advances contribute for an overall better human life?
As we look to the adoption of integrated intelligence, a merging of human and machine intelligence, what role will nature play as an ever important element to our existence?
