On The Road To Artificial Intelligence

Once the realm of science fiction, smart machines are rapidly becoming part of our world—and these technologies offer amazing potential to improve the way we live. Imagine intelligent, autonomous vehicles that reduce crashes and alleviate congestion in crowded cities. Imagine robots that can help your aged grandma move around safely or instructors that can assist special-needs children in classrooms. Gil Pratt, former head of the Robotics Challenge at DARPA, now heads up the $1 billion Silicon Valley-based, Toyota Research Institute where he and his team are pushing the boundaries of human knowledge in autonomous vehicles and robotics. This session will explore the breakthrough technologies on the horizon and the unprecedented issues we will face in this brave new world.

Microsoft's Artificial Intelligence Meltdown

Computer scientist Alan Turing created a conversation test for robots that has been a benchmark for over sixty years. But as humanoid robots develop every day, can any yet fool us into thinking they are human?

From robots like Atlas at Boston Dynamics, built to withstand physical bullying, to the uncanny silicon and hair humanoids developed at Hanson robotics, we take a look at some of the most advanced androids ever created. Yet imitating simple conversation can still be a test too far, as Microsoft discovered after the widely publicised failure of their Twitter robot, Tay. Alistair Charlton, senior tech reporter for the International Business Times, argues that the industry has more successful options to pursue. "Tay has much more to offer than a Twitter account", he says.
