Professorial Lecture by Professor Chris Bowerman: ‘Can we build an AI brain and when will it take over from humans?’

Professorial Lecture by Professor Chris Bowerman at the University of Sunderland on Wednesday 31 January, 6pm

Professor Chris Bowerman is a Professor of Data Science (Artificial Intelligence) in the Faculty of Computer Science.

His research is centred around the areas of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning in Data Science.

In this lecture, Professor Chris Bowerman will look at how a major paradigm shift in the computing landscape is under way.

Computers are learning!

They are becoming thinking machines. Such cognitive computers will aid humans in formulating solutions and decision making.

Advances are already having an impact in our lives such as Amazon Echo, making fraud predictions, personalised medicine and IBM Watson health.

But when and what will happen if our 60 year old  AI brain-child turns on us?
