UGLY ROBOTS, IMPERFECT AI & SMART MACHINES:
The Good, The Bad & The Naive
#MCSFReactor #NYCReactor

Artificial Intelligence is here, but are we all being wildly optimistic? Are trucks really going to be driverless in 5 years? Can AI really get me the toppings I requested on my pizza (not necessarily, you don't always get what you thought you wanted!). The public has no idea what they are getting themselves into -- the benefits, the horrors and the "meh". Our four amazing expert panelists will delve into the nonsense, the reality, the timing and the $$ in a think-tank type discussion, followed by a fireside chat in an even deeper dive with our resident AI Content Expert.& Innovation Leader.

1. Luke Schantz, IBM Global Entrepreneur Proram & Technical Manager & Evangelist (ask him about his work with the Blue Man Group!)

2. Gale Brewer , Manhattan Borough President, specializing in government efficiency and accountability in technology.

3. Sep DiMeglio, developer audiences marketing manager & AI Advocate, Microsoft

4. Bjorn Austraat, IBM Global Cognitive Leader and Senior Applied AI & Machine Learning Executive
