Artificial Intelligence (AI) has seen a lot of hype recently from big dollar startup acquisitions to doomsday predictions. These lead to more questions than answers such as - What is at the core of AI advancements? What’s driving the hype? And what are the true promises and perils of a “super intelligence?”

Join ThinkTopic CEO, Jeff Rose (formerly of DeepMind), as he walks through the design of the neocortex, how the mechanism of the human brain translates to AI software, and the reasons why machine learning is taking off today. Finally, get a “hype-free” view of its potential while engaging in some fun thought experiments on future AI utopias and dystopias.
