Social Machines: The Coming Collision of Artificial Intelligence, Social Networking, and Humanity
Speaker: James Hendler, Distinguished ACM Speaker, Rensselaer Institute for Data Exploration and Applications, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI)
As technology has increasingly brought computing off of the laptop and into our social domain, we see society more and more impacted by the interactions allowed by mobile technologies and increasingly ubiquitous communications. These new sources of data, coupled with new breakthroughs in computation, and especially AI, are opening new vistas for ways that information comes into our world, and how what we do increasingly impacts others. Current social networking sites will be, to the coming generation of social machines, what the early "entertainment" web was to the read/write capabilities once called "Web 2.0." In this talk, we explore some of these trends and some of the promises and challenges of these emerging technologies.
Time: 5:50-6:30 pm (map)
Browsing Session Atrium (J) Building 1st floor lobby
You will also learn about our three master’s programs: Information Technology, Computer Science and Software Engineering!
The College offers foundation certificates to help students with non-computing-related undergraduate degrees to transition into a Computing Master’s programs, or to obtain an entry-level positions in the industry.
Sonic Pi Party: Atrium (J) Building room J 263
Sonic Pi, an open source live coding synthesizer that lets people use code to compose and perform in classical and contemporary music.
