Event Details

Ever wondered how Facebook guesses the friends in your photos? Have you purchased a suggested item from Amazon? Did you know Uber is already using self-driving cars in Pittsburgh?


Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) and Machine Learning, vaguely understood or noticed by most, is already amongst us in many forms. From cellphone assistants like Siri, to news articles written by software machines are now able to learn and make decisions with a level of sophistication most of us don’t appreciate.


  • How does A.I. work?

  • How is it helping humankind… and how might it be disrupting our economy?

  • Could it take your job?

  • Could it threaten the human race, as some of the brightest minds in the world have suggested?


Get answers to all these questions and more by joining us for a free, informative and casual discussion with University of Toronto Professor, Sheila McIlraith, about the world of Artificial Intelligence. Her brief presentation will be followed by an extensive Q&A.

We look forward to seeing you.
