AI Advances and Applications

September 2, 2020

Is AI at an impasse? The growth of AI to date has been fueled by massive amounts of data and exponential gains in processing efficiency. But are these gains sustainable and if not, what is going to take us to the next level? 

Join us virtually at EmTech MIT as we look at the status quo and the road ahead for AI. We’ll examine how today’s AI tools are being used to solve real-world problems, and how that work may inform future innovations. 
 
AI Tomorrow 
The power of deep learning has expanded but has yet to lead to deep understanding. What needs to happen for the major step in the development of AI?  
Featuring: Geoffrey Hinton, Professor Emeritus, University of Toronto and VP and Engineering Fellow, Google 
 
You Can’t Spell Agriculture or Climate without AI 
From better climate models to more efficient supply chains, how can we leverage the power of AI to feed the world? 
Featuring: Sara Menker, Founder and CEO, Gro Intelligence  

Register today and we’ll see you virtually in October.
