About this Event

On this Master Class Professor Robert Polding will be talking about Artificial Intelligence. Challenges and opportunities.

About the topic:

Artificial intelligence has the potential to evolve into super intelligence, which is something more intelligent than humans. That could mean it is the last and most important discovery in our history, and it could do anything we need.

It could also disrupt the job market and could be used for greater good as well as unspeakable evil. In this talk, we will learn what the leading experts in the field are saying and dispel some of the hype and myths surrounding AI. Artificial intelligence is the focus of Silicon Valley today.

All large technology companies are racing to find the best solutions to help us perform all manner of tasks. Artificial intelligence will be the ultimate enhancement of humans.
