Who's Afraid of the Big Bad AI? Is Artificial Intelligence a threat?
About the meeting
It kinda looks like computers are getting smarter than people*. Computers are indeed getting better at solving "hard" problems.
The implications are huge and maybe scary.** We'll discuss: What is Artificial Intelligence (AI)? What is Human Intelligence?
Why are we humans not machines, have nothing to fear from and everything to look forward to with this new-fangled AI that's popping up everywhere.
This will be a very entertaining learning opportunity.
* Watson beat Ken Jennings on Jeopardy. AlphaGo beat Go master Lee Se-dol four games out of five.
** Remember the movie The Terminator?
About the speaker Lionel Goulet
Lionel is both a computer nerd and a bible nerd. That combination is important when it comes to talking about Artificial Intelligence.
He graduated MIT a looong time ago, does in-home and small-business IT support, and likes to be the center of attention. In order to
get the attention he craves, he puts together interesting talks on things he knows about. His greatest accomplishment is his 30-year
marriage to his wife Susan, and his two almost-grown-now sons.
The meeting will be held at Massachusetts Bay Community College (MassBay) in Wellesley Hills. We will
meet on the 3rd floor, in or near room 314.
You will need to have a free parking permit and directions. These are located online (print yours)
