Thinking at Twilight, Wednesday 7 March 2018

CamSoc NSW welcomes guest speaker and Cambridge alumnus Professor Toby Walsh, speaking on The A to Z of AI.

 
The development of thinking machines is an adventure as bold and ambitious as any that humans have attempted. And the truth is that Artificial Intelligence is already an indispensable part of our daily lives. Without it, Google wouldn’t have answers and your smartphone would just be a phone. But how will AI change society by 2050? Will it destroy jobs? Or even pose an existential threat?

Toby Walsh is a leading researcher in Artificial Intelligence. He was recently named in the inaugural Knowledge Nation 100, the one hundred "rock stars" of Australia's digital revolution. Read more here
