Gary Marcus - Rebooting AI: Building Artificial Intelligence We Can Trust — at Politics and Prose at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Saturday, September 14, 2019 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

A leading expert on artificial intelligence, Marcus is former CEO and founder of the machine learning startup Geometric Intelligence and now CEO and founder of Robust AI. Building on his influential New York Times op-ed, “A.I. Is Harder Than You Think,” co-written with Ernest Davis, Marcus shows that while building robots that can win chess games may seem impressive, such achievements—occurring in closed systems with fixed sets of rules—fall short of operating at human levels of cognition in a complex world. Marcus outlines what we need to do to realize the full potential of this technology, including ways to create an AI we can trust—not one we ought to fear will supersede human capabilities.
