Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Benefits and Problems

How does Artificial Intelligence (AI) affect you on a daily basis?

Our speaker will be Philip E. Bourne who is the founding dean of the School of Data Science, the newest and 12th School to be formed in the University’s 200 year history

AI is technology that enables computers and machines to simulate human intelligence and problem-solving capabilities. AI is neither good nor bad. It is a tool that can be used for both beneficial and harmful purposes, depending on how it is developed and used.

The program will be moderated by SSV Board Member Sue Friedman.
