Dozens of times per day, we all interact with intelligent machines that are constantly learning from the wealth of data now available to them. These machines, from smartphones to talking robots to self-driving cars, are remaking the world in the 21st century in the same way that the Industrial Revolution remade the world in the 19th century.

Join us for early morning coffee to hear Professor James Scott speak on AI concepts from on his new book, AQI: How People and Machines are Smarter Together.

AIQ is based on a simple premise: if you want to understand the modern world, then you have to know a little bit of the mathematical language spoken by intelligent machines. AIQ will teach you that language―but in an unconventional way, anchored in stories rather than equations.

You will meet a fascinating cast of historical characters who have a lot to teach you about data, probability, and better thinking. Along the way, you'll see how these same ideas are playing out in the modern age of big data and intelligent machines―and how these technologies will soon help you to overcome some of your built-in cognitive weaknesses, giving you a chance to lead a happier, healthier, more fulfilled life.

What you will learn:

  • What you need to know to understand how artificial intelligence is changing the world
  • Why the democratization of AI is making these technologies available to every business, regardless of size or specialty
  • How the public narratives surrounding AI are broken
  • Why Scott’s number one message for business leaders is: beware the AI vendor hacks
  • How most of the key ideas in AI are actually old—in some cases, centuries old

Dozens of times per day, we all interact with intelligent machines that are constantly learning from the wealth of data now available to them. These machines, from smartphones to talking robots to self-driving cars, are remaking the world in the 21st century in the same way that the Industrial Revolution remade the world in the 19th century.   What are the implications of this revolution for business, and for society at large?

Join us for early morning coffee to hear Professor James Scott discuss his new book on artificial intelligence, entitled "AIQ: How People and Machines are Smarter Together."  To understand the changes now taking place, writes Scott, you have to know a little bit about the details behind AI: what it is, how it works, where it came from, and how some of the key ideas are surprisingly old.  AIQ teaches you about the key ideas driving these technologies of the future—but in an unconventional way, anchored not in equations, but in historical tales of human ingenuity.     What you will learn: - What you need to know to understand how artificial intelligence is changing the world - Why the democratization of AI is making these technologies available to every business, regardless of size or specialty - How the public narratives surrounding AI are broken - Why Scott’s number one message for business leaders is: beware the AI vendor hacks - How most of the key ideas in AI are actually old—in some cases, centuries old
