Michael’s talk discusses how AI is already in your everyday life, in ways you may not realize. He explains some myths and concerns while preparing you to look at AI in a different way than you likely do today. Michael L. Littman is a Computer Science Professor at Brown University, studying machine learning and decision making under uncertainty. He is co-director of Brown’s Humanity Centered Robotics Initiative, a Fellow of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence, and has earned multiple awards for his teaching and research. An enthusiastic performer, Michael has had roles in numerous community theater productions and a TV commercial.

Timnit Gebru, Stanford Alum and Co-Founder of Black in AI, shares remarkable insights to show how artificial intelligence is influencing thinking and decision-making in ways we didn’t imagine and must counter before it further marginalizes people. Timnit works at Microsoft, New York in the Fairness Accountability Transparency and Ethics (FATE) Group where her team works on the complex social implications of AI, machine learning, data science, large-scale experimentation, and increasing automation. She previously worked at Stanford’s Artificial Intelligence Lab where she received her PhD, and is Co-Founder of Black in AI, an organization that aims to foster collaborations and discuss initiatives to increase the presence of Black people in the field of Artificial Intelligence.

One of the largest elements to any data analysis, natural language processing included, is pre-processing. This is the methodology used to “clean up” and prepare your data for analysis. One of the first steps to pre-processing is to utilize stop-words. Stop words are words that you want to filter out of any analysis. These are words that carry no meaning, or carry conflicting meanings that you simply do not want to deal with. The NLTK module comes with a set of stop words for many language pre-packaged, but you can also easily append more to this list.

Artificial Intelligence will eliminate millions of jobs. It’s inevitable. While many of us are willing to accept that there are jobs that will be replaced by AI in our lifetime, we still believe in the lasting power of our own work. This is a mistake. Conventional wisdom would have us believe that only the most routine of jobs are at risk, but this just isn’t the case. It’s not just trucking, assembly lines, and blue collar jobs. In fact, AI will be replacing and drastically altering many jobs that few would consider “routine.” Chris Orlob from Gong.io shared a glimpse into the future of sales coaching with AI-powered analysis of over 25 thousand sales calls. Even if a sales coach listened to 45-minute sales calls for 8 hours a day, it would take them 9 years to analyze this data, assuming they take 0 vacation days and use their nights and weekends to actually deliver the feedback. It is impossible for any sales coach or manager to deliver this kind of insight. A sales coach is not typically considered a routine job. Marketing jobs are hardly any safer. Conde Nast is using Watson’s incredible processing power to locate influencers for brands based on data that would take a human years to analyze. Graphic designers aren’t being put out of work quite yet, but AIs are actively working on the ability to understand and categorize images. Last year, The Next Rembrandt project used AI to analyze the 17th century Master’s work [More]
Tobay Walsh on “How can you stop killer robots” at TEDxBerlin (http://www.tedxberlin.de) Toby Walsh is one of the leading researchers in the world in Artificial Intelligence. He is currently working in Berlin thanks to a Humboldt Research award. He is a Professor of Artificial Intelligence at the University of New South Wales back in Sydney, Australia, and a Research Group leader at NICTA, Australia’s Centre of Excellence for ICT Research. He has been elected a fellow of the Association for the Advancement of AI for his contributions to AI research. Earlier this year, he was one of the initial signatories of an Open Letter calling for a ban on offensive autonomous weapons. The letter was also signed by Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk and Steve Wozniak. In total, the letter now has close to 20,000 signatures and has pushed this issue into the world’s spotlight. The letter argues that we need to take action today to prevent an arms race in which these lethal autonomous weapons fall into the hands of terrorists and rogue nations.

Max Howell draws back the curtain on the reality that artificial super intelligence will be here sooner than we think, and shares his approach to thinking about how it might impact our future. Max Howell has a master’s degree in chemistry, but after a year in the profession, abandoned it upon realizing chemistry is “super boring”. He began exploring open source coding. After working at Last.fm, then TweetDeck, Howell created Homebrew, an open source software manager that is today used by about 50 million people. He also authored a tweet about the interview process in the software industry that has been viewed more than 3 million times. Last year, he and his wife started a mobile app development company in Savannah.
