Is Your Computer Smarter Than You? – A Guide to Artificial Intelligence – Monday 26 Sep 2011

A picture from the film 'The Matrix'In the 1999 film The Matrix, one of the lead characters Morpheus tells us that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is: ‘A singular consciousness that spawned an entire race of machines’. This has lead to many people being terrified of the concept of AI.

This is Dr. Karen Petrie’s chance to set the record straight. In this talk she will discuss what AI really is and tell you how it can be used to good effect.

Join us at the award winning Chambers Coffeehouse and Restaurant, 34 South Tay Street for this intriguing discussion on the ability of computers to mimic human intelligence and behaviour.

Chambers will serve a selection of their delicious HOT MEALS until 6:15pm, followed by snacks and hot drinks during the talk. Please see their website for a menu and more information.
