Artifical Intelligence, Humans, and The Future — with Professor Nick Jennings.
In our increasingly connected world, computation is everywhere and we are generating ever more data about everything. These trends will profoundly change the ways in which we work with computers. Specifically, we need the machines to be smarter and more helpful.
Central to this vision is the means by which we can forge effective partnerships with such artificial intelligence (AI) systems.
Until now, humans have generally been the masters and technology the slave. This needs to change. Today’s AI systems can act on high-level human commands and achieve complex goals in a flexible manner. But, while such systems are good at solving narrowly defined tasks, they don’t know how to collaborate with humans or how to operate as part of a problem-solving team.
This talk will explore how humans and AI systems can work together. In such partnerships, the humans and the AI systems complement each other’s strengths and weaknesses, leading to a rise in the humans, as well as in the machines. Drawing on multi-disciplinary work in the areas of AI, autonomous systems, machine learning, crowd sourcing and ubiquitous computing, this talk explores the scientific underpinning of such systems, the applications they have been applied to, and the societal implications of their widespread adoption.
Nick Jennings is Vice-Provost (Research) and Professor of Artificial Intelligence at Imperial College London. Before joining Imperial, he was the Regius Professor of Computer Science at the University of Southampton (a post created by the monarch to recognise research excellence) and the UK Government’s Chief Scientific Advisor for National Security.
