Public Lecture: Machines: How Do They Learn and Where Are They Headed?

Artificial intelligence and machine learning have taken the world by storm and are expected to be significant forces in industrial innovation going forward. Like any new technology, artificial intelligence and machine learning will have positive, as well as negative effects. Media and television shows speculate about a future with machines taking over, but is that a reality? Sanjeev Arora, Visiting Professor in the School of Mathematics, and Richard Zemel, Visitor in the School of Mathematics, will give brief talks about the field of machine learning and its major technical challenges followed by a panel discussion moderated by Robbert Dijkgraaf, Director and Leon Levy Professor.

A livestream of the talks will be aired on this page, beginning at 5:30 p.m. today.
