AI: Promise, Perils and Prejudice (2020)

CREMORNE THEATRE QPAC

Summary

Artificial intelligence is already part of our daily lives, helping us avoid traffic jams, email spam and bad dates. Once a phenomenon restricted to sci-fi movies, technology has finally caught up with our imagination.

The past decade has seen incredible advances in machine programming and processing power. Computers are increasingly learning to predict, adapt and even feel, but can they ever truly replicate or even exceed human intelligence? As machines learn to think, act and even feel like a human being, where does that leave us mortals and how do we rid them of the same old biases and inequalities?
