5 Ways Singularity University is Exploring Artificial Intelligence at Global Summit This August

Is artificial intelligence a friend or foe to humans?

This is an issue many of us contemplate as our lives become increasingly intertwined with technology. AI is impacting nearly every major industry, which is why Singularity University focuses on AI in its programs, including this August’s Global Summit in San Francisco.

The SU team is working at warp speed to ensure this year’s Global Summit is the best one yet, and is convening some of the finest minds from an array of fields to guide an exploration of the light and dark sides of AI. The next wave of presenters and sessions is now available, and what follows below is a glimpse of what to expect and who you’ll hear from in this year’s program when it comes to AI.  

AI 101

Singularity University Faculty, Nathana Sharma, kicks off the AI conversation at Global Summit with a rapid-fire introduction to the fundamentals of machine learning and artificial intelligence. 

AI Cage Match

Machine learning and AI represent humankind’s greatest exponential leap forward—or a threat to our jobs and our very autonomy. Which is it? Hear from Neil Jacobstein (Chair of AI and Robotics at SU), Naveen Jain (Viome), and more. 

Solving Today’s Problems with AI

As these exponential technologies move beyond the lab and into the field, how do we know what kinds of problems next-generation software can solve? Come hear a variety of practitioners building breakthrough applications to focus on real-world challenges. Neeti Mehta (Automation Anywhere), Mike Capps (Diveplane), Dr. Vasco Pedro (Unbabel), and Nathana Sharma (SU Faculty for Blockchain, Policy, Law & Ethics) will participate in this panel discussion.

AI – Hope, Hype, Reality

The vast majority of large companies say they’re deep into exploring machine learning and artificial intelligence—but few have a methodology to ensure successful initiatives. Gain insights about what AI can and can’t do, and how to implement AI programs that generate results.

AI for Good

How can AI and machine learning make the world a better place? Leila Toplic (NetHope) will lead the way in this session, exploring ways in which “smart” software is being used to have an impact on some of humanity’s deepest challenges.

It’s hard to believe that Global Summit is only two months away! Time is running out, and you won’t want to miss this opportunity to hear the latest from leaders in AI and on disruptive innovations in AR/VR, future of work, impact investing, and more. Get your ticket to Global Summit today, before they’re all gone, and get ready to join the Singularity University community for an unforgettable experience in San Francisco.
