Artificial Intelligence

PRESENTED ON FEB 16, 2017
IN MADISON, WI @ VOL 21

In Honor of World Science Day for Peace and Development:

"I don't know what the future of artificial intelligence is, I don't think anybody really does..."

In Artificial Intelligence from PechaKucha Night Madison, WI Vol. 21Jules Brovont will clear away some common misconceptions about what artificial intelligence is, what it isn't, and what its capabilities are. Are you already using AI without realizing it? Where is AI taking us as a society, and how is it already changing our lives? Jules will scratch the surface of these fundamental questions, and catch a glimpse of how this technology is already beginning to shake the foundation of our civilization.

APPLAUD THIS!

The Information of Space

BY MILES THOROGOOD

Standing at the Crossroads of Biology, Computation, and Design

BY DAVID BENJAMIN
@ VOL 4 ON MAY 18, 2015

David Benjamin is Principal at The Living, a design firm that brings architecture and design to life — literally. David expounds upon some of the amazing projects his firm uses to combine natural, biological intelligence and artificial intelligence to find new solutions to old problems.

Whether it’s using living mussels and sensors to understand changes in water quality, or growing biodegradable bricks using the root-like structures of mushrooms and agricultural waste, and then building a structure using 10 thousand of these, the projects in action are a small window into our future.

 This was "Presentation of the Day" on May 29th, 2017.

Artificially Intelligent - No! - Yes for Real!

BY HEW LEITH
@ VOL 17 ON NOV 09, 2017

Hew Leith gave his PechaKucha at Vol. 17 of the London Series and introduced the audience to IntelligentX, the world's first beer brewed by artificial intelligence which he created with Dr Rob McInerney.

When The Guardian hear about A.I Beer they agreed it may be the first use of AI they feel okay about - "AI might be shaking up life as we know it, but like any good party guest, it’s about bringing the beers. That’s according to the work of London-based company IntelligentX, which is using artificial intelligence to brew the perfect pint"

Right after Hew's talk I know most of the audience were already Googling to find out more - order your own AI Beer here - http://intelligentx.ai/

Accidental Intelligence

BY CHRIS DE JONG
@ VOL 2 ON MAR 01, 2018

Fascinated with the evolution of neural networks and applied learning, Chris de Jong decided to create a twitter bot.

A project with unexpected results, this experiment taught him that creators need to be conscious of the biases that can be transferred and amplified through tech. and the resulting effects on society.
