Please join us as Michael Hess leads a discussion of Michael Wooldridge's A Brief History of Artificial Intelligence: What It Is, Where We Are, and Where We Are Going.
An AI researcher for over 25 years, Oxford University professor Michael Wooldridge has given us a one-stop-shop for AI’s past, present, and world-changing future. As Head of the Computer Science Department at Oxford, he brings an educator’s perspective to explaining what’s been solved, what’s left to do, and possible futures. Wooldridge is both obsessively cautious about miraculous “breakthrough” claims for AI but also intensely optimistic about the future of the field. Our discussion leader has also done his own research on AI as it relates to chess and bridge, which he will share with us. To enhance our discussion, we’ll be joined by ChatGPT (or whatever it’s called by January 2024) so we can see what it “thinks” about all this. As Kirkus said in a review: “robot butlers are not on the horizon, but this is an insightful update on the digital revolution still in progress.”
