From spam filters to stock trading bots, the applications of artificial intelligence are already omnipresent. This poses important questions such as: Will my autonomous vacuum cleaner go on a rampage and eat the hamster? Do neural networks think like brains? What are the chances of a robot uprising? The presentation will address these questions and give an introduction to artificial intelligence, which is impacting all our lives, perhaps more than most people are aware of. However, the talk will not discuss machine translation and related topics. No knowledge of computer science or advanced mathematics is required to attend.
