We’re just over a month out from our TC Sessions: Robotics + AI event at UC Berkeley on April 18. We’ve already announced a number of marquee guests for the event, including Marc Raibert, Colin Angle, Melonee Wise and Anthony Levandowski. Today we’ve got another exciting panel to unveil and as an FYI our early bird sale ends Friday!
This is our third robotics event, but it’s the first time artificial intelligence has shared the spotlight. Today we’re revealing that two of UC Berkeley’s top names in the space will be sharing a stage to discuss the role of AI in society for a panel titled, TC Sessions: Robotics + AI Artificial Intelligence: Minds, Economies and Systems that Learn.
The pair of professors will be discussing how AI grew to become of modern society’s most ubiquitous and wide ranging technologies. The panel will also explore where the tech will go from here.
