February 20 marks the 2016 MIT Tech Conference, hosted at the MIT Media Lab. We are thrilled to host an impressive array of professors, professionals, researchers and practitioners, all with varying perspectives on, and experiences with, Artificial Intelligence.
To provide a preview of this weekend's event, we've included brief bios for our slated keynotes:
Ray Kurzweil – Author, inventor, futurist
Inc. magazine describes him as the "rightful heir to Thomas Edison." PBS selected him as one of the "sixteen revolutionaries who made America." In 2012, Kurzweil was appointed Director of Engineering at Google, heading up a team developing machine intelligence and natural language understanding.
Rob High - IBM Fellow, Vice President and CTO, IBM Watson
As a key member of the Watson Leadership team, High works collaboratively with the Watson engineering, research, and development teams across IBM.
