Understanding AI – How Does It Matter?

Artificial intelligence is typically defined as the ability of a machine to perform cognitive functions we associate with a human mind such as learning, perceiving, problem solving and reasoning. It stands out as a transformational technology with the possibility to reshape society as we know it and its practical implications are becoming increasingly relevant.

Some of the most interesting examples of technologies that enable AI are found in the field of robotics and autonomous systems.  In this breakfast seminar Christian Smith, Associate Professor in Computer Science – Robotics and Autonomous Systems, will talk about how we can understand the possibilities and challenges of AI and robotics today. He will also give us his view on where the field is heading in the future.
