The Future of Artificial Intelligence

Monday, April 11, 2016
7 PM - 9 PM
Barrett Theater, Vista Del Sol Community Center, ASU Tempe


Join us for the fourth of a four-part series, The Future of "X," a series of conversations sponsored by The School for the Future of Innovation in Society (SFIS), The Center for Energy in Society and the Barrett Honors College about the futures we want to create. Symbols-Neurons, Logic-Probability, Replace-Augment, Disappointment-Doomsday: Where will the AI pendulum swing next? Since its inception, the field of a AI has seen a fascinating series of pendulum swings both in its internal research methodology and in its external public perception. We will examine some of these prominent swings to-date, and consider where the pendulum might swing next.
