Title: A History of AI
Speaker: Jay Yagnik
Vice President, Google USA
Venue: Faculty Hall, IISc
Date: 4-5 pm, Wednesday, Dec 4, 2019
We have reached a remarkable point in history with the evolution of AI, from applying this technology to incredible use cases in healthcare to addressing the world’s biggest humanitarian and environmental issues. Our ability to learn task specific functions for vision, language, sequence and control tasks is getting better at a rapid pace. This talk will survey some of the current advances in AI and compare AI to other fields that have historically developed over time, and calibrate where we are in the relative advancement timeline. We will also speculate about the next inflection points and capabilities that AI can offer down the road and how it might intersect with other emergent fields e.g., Quantum computing.
