Seminar Series -- Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications seem to be everywhere today, even though we have been waiting since the 1950s. Its current day components are called machine learning, deep learning, or cognitive computing. The widespread use of AI in a host of commercial products and services has been fueled by functioning digital neural networks, advances in lower cost and faster computer processing, as well as data analytics that allow efficient analysis of massive data sets. AI is crucial to present and future applications like self-driving autos, digital personal assistants that answer all our questions, effective speech and text recognition/translation, advanced image and face recognition, and detecting cancer. This Series will examine the status of these technologies and the policy challenges that could affect their future benefits. All sessions (dinner meetings) will be held at Maggiano’s in DC at 6:30 p.m. on the second Tuesdays of October through March. $320 pp members/guests; $350 pp all others. Almost Full
