Event description

Description

Please join us for the 2019 Mattson-New York Times Lecture Presented by The Osher Map Library and Smith Center for Cartographic Education

The 2019 Mattson-New York Times lecture, "Mapmaking in the Age of Artificial Intelligence (AI)," will be presented by Dr. Tim Wallace, Creative Director at Descartes Labs, and recent graphics editor and geographer for the New York Times.

Description: The art and science of mapmaking are in the midst of a giant leap forward, thanks to machine learning algorithms that are making quick work of once-impossible cartographic efforts. Because of AI, features like buildings, trees, wind turbines and wildfires can all be mapped across vast expanses and at great speed. And, lucky for us, geographers, cartographers, and storytellers are taking note of the new and evolving capabilities--and digging in.

Please join us for what promises to be a fascinating lecture.

Free and open to the public. Doors open at 5:30pm.
