Description

JOIN US AT THE MELBOURNE CONNECT MONTHLY BREAKFAST

What role will artificial intelligence play in our lives to assist us in our human capabilities such as data analysis, decision making and storytelling?

You're invited to join a free panel discussion focussed on the future of artificial intelligence and the role it currently plays in our lives, gradually growing in capacity to supplement human abilities.

With AI encompassing deep learning, data mining, machine learning, natural language processing and agent-based systems, it can be used in health & medicine, government and search engine assistance (plus much more) in order to make sense of human-derived data.

The School of Computing and Information Systems at the University of Melbourne is an international research leader in computer science, information systems and software engineering with particular emphasis in the fields of artificial intelligence and interaction design.
