Demystifying Artificial Intelligence for Everyone

Submitted by N. CHATURV3DI (@chaturv3di) on Tuesday, 30 April 2019

Section: Full talk Technical level: Beginner Session type: Lecture

Abstract

Humans have fancied and feared humanoid machines for more than 2000 years. In this talk, we follow the thread that ties our search for super-human machines together with millennia of developments in philosophy, logic, and mathematics. We take a closer look at what Machine Learning & AI really are, what they aren’t, and how they are affecting our societies. This is a non-technical talk, accessible to laypersons from all disciplines. No math required.

Outline

  • A History: From Panini to Leibniz to Turing
  • What is AI & What it isn’t
  • What Awaits Us

Requirements

Curiosity and an interest in history of science & technology.
