“AI 101” – What It Is, How It Works, and Why It’s So Important
April 6, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Artificial intelligence (AI) is one the most hyped technologies of our time–with very good reason. Machine learning approaches, including deep learning, enable us to train models that can inference–classify, judge, predict, decide–better, faster, and/or cheaper than humans for an increasing number of increasingly complex tasks. Technology visionaries and leaders are proclaiming AI to be the most revolutionary capability of our time, and that AI will change every industry, every aspects of our lives, everything. In this first presentation of our “AI April,” we’ll explain what AI, machine learning, and deep learning, are and how they work. We’ll focus on understanding how this is truly different, and provide information on how to learn more–fast.
We welcome your participation! Please email us with your questions, answers and prognostications in advance.
Admission to the Austin Forum is always free.
The Austin Forum accepts donations of used smart phones and tablets at all our events. All devices will have a factory reset and be set up as new by the team at Austin Pathways’ nationally-recognized “Unlocking the Connection” initiative, which will connect every public housing resident with a digital device, digital literacy, and a free or very low-cost internet connection. Your donated phone can change lives and help close Austin’s digital divide, thanks to Austin Pathways.
