#3072 An Introduction to Artificial Intelligence, Part II

Instructor: Paul Garrett (Zoom) and Dr. Henry Gertzman (Classroom)

What is Artificial Intelligence? How does it work?  How is it changing our world?  Is it a look into the future? Is it a quest to build machines that can reason, learn, and act intelligently? Has it already begun? What do scientific thinkers and world leaders think about how AI may transform every aspect of our lives? After the classroom lectures, we will have time for student discussions and questions. 


The rapid pace of change in technology, in general, and AI, specifically, make it almost impossible to look ahead.  Therefore the topics for each class will reflect what is currently happening at the moment.
