The Future of Artificial Intelligence From an AI Pioneer
Feedback form is now closed.
Artificial Intelligence has been a game changer across all industries. And while statistical machine learning is a powerful tool for discovering patterns in the data, can it produce understanding? Will it enable humans to justify and take reasoned responsibility for individual outcomes? 
Dr. David Ferrucci is an AI pioneer. He is the award-winning AI researcher who led the IBM Watson team from inception in 2006 to success in 2011 when Watson defeated Jeopardy.
Ferrucci believes AI systems should not only propose solutions or answers but should be able to explain why they make sense.
His presentation will look at Elemental Cognition which is focused on creating AI systems that autonomously learn from human language and interaction to become powerful and fluent thought partners facilitating complex decision making.  In short, how the future of AI will enable humans and machines to share an understanding collaborate on exploring the question “why”.
