Beyond the AI Hype: How AI is changing our lives today


A keynote address given at the United Nations

In the near future, human thinking will be combined with machine thinking to make possible things that we can only dream of at present. We’ve already made great strides in using AI for precision medicine, practicing law, improving education, generative design . . . and this is just the tip of the iceberg. In this session, we will learn how AI works, how it is applied to create the foundation of cyber-physical systems, and how it changes the future of work and society. More importantly, we will understand how we can combine human thinking with machine "thinking" to unlock unimagined new capabilities.
