What is Artificial Intelligence and should we be worried?

Friday, 17 November 2023 - 10:00am to 10:30am

In a world where Artificial Intelligence seems to be intruding into so many aspects of our lives, Jennifer and Jacques challenge common notions of what AI is, especially the idea that it is 'intelligent' at all. (Clue - it just fakes intelligence).

They explore the myriad dangers of delegating decision-making affecting humans to the computational power of AI.
