The Indian Professionals Association cordially invites you to its Annual Day conference:
Frontiers of Humanity: Is AI becoming less artificial and more intelligent? Implications for Society
Date & Time: June16, 2018 : 3 PM
Venue*: Maison de l’Inde, Cité Universitaire, 7 Boulevard Jourdan, 75014 Paris
Since several decades we are familiar with AI based applications such as credit cards, search engines (Google et al), a semi intelligent voice machine cautioning us to make a U-turn to regain the correct path to the destination… Many such devices loaded with AI have already become items of necessity we cannot do without. And many more are on way: Self-driven cars taking you to your destination without having to bother about road conditions, a robot running errands at the flick of a button… Machines accomplishing specific problem solving or reasoning tasks nearly at par with human intelligence. These are some of the illustrations how AI could help humans live a comfortable life. However, there is a downside too emanating from unbridled advances of AI. The world chess champion Gary Kasparov not happy to be defeated by IBM’s “Deep Blue” in 1997 rightly quipped: “If you program a machine, you know what it’s capable of. If the machine is programming itself, who knows what it might do?” Needless to say, scientists, societies and governments will have to deal with AI related challenges, many yet to be fully identified.
