We've finally entered the world of HAL, where voice activated services like Siri, Cortana and Alexa attempt to cater to our needs. Within a few decades, synthetic "brains" will be able to execute 100 trillion instructions per second--an activity level that rivals the human brain. That brings the prospect of helpful servants like Cerebro and Lieutenant Commander Data--or perhaps malevolent entities like Brainiac and Skynet. Our panelists will discuss the A.I. capabilities soon to arrive and the opportunities and threats they will bring to humanity. Speakers include Greg Corrado (Senior Research Scientist, Google), Lucas Ives (Engineering Lead, PullString Inc.), Brandon Wirtz (CEO and founder, Recognant), Sarah Austin (CEO and founder, Peak Energies), Nigel Duffy (CTO, Sentient Technologies), and moderator Danny Sullivan (founding Editor of Search Engine Land).
