IRMAC General Meeting

The Real Work Behind AI

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the science of enabling a computer to perform a specific task without providing explicit instructions. AI is the hottest buzz word in tech, and with good reason. Recent breakthroughs have seen a number of techniques previously reserved for science fiction slowly transforming into science fact.

With current technologies, one can use AI to achieve unprecedented expert-level accuracy for diverse applications. However, using AI algorithms requires a good understanding of their requirements and limitations. In this session, we will clearly define AI nomenclature, and explore the potential and challenges of using AI technologies to efficiently solve real-world problems.
