There have long been strong opinions on either side of the artificial intelligence debate; some people rave about its advantages while others can’t get past visions of machines systematically taking over a la 'I, Robot.' In this panel, we’ll bring together experts on AI, robotics and machine learning to discuss how the answer lies somewhere in the middle. Yes, there are the concerning aspects to AI - a less personal society and privacy issues - but also inarguable upsides, like anticipatory technology that enhances rather than detracts from the less digital parts of life. Join us for a debate on common myths, misconceptions and concerns related to AI, and what a future of human-like computers really means for our society.
