AI and Machine Learning Demystified

What is machine learning? Is UX relevant in the age of artificial intelligence? How can I take advantage of cognitive computing? Get answers to these questions and learn about the implications for your work in this session. Carol will help you understand at a basic level how these systems are built and what is required to get insights from them. Carol will present examples of how machine learning is already being used and explore the ethical challenges inherent in creating AI. You will walk away with an awareness of the weaknesses of AI and the knowledge of how these systems work.

Thanks for coming! Check out: VideoSlides and Photos.

All registration activities are handled by our volunteers. Please be advised that on the day of the event, we will do our best to manage transfers and late requests, but our primary focus will be on day-of-event logistics.

Regular registration closes at 5pm ET on Friday, February 23 -or- whenever seating capacity is reached, whichever occurs first. Tickets can be transferred by sending a request to up until 48 hours before the event opening. Transfer requests received after this period may not be received or processed. Transferees will please bring the transferrer's registration confirmation in printed or digital form as backup.

If the event sells out early, a Wait List may be set up and managed by us on a discretionary basis. We will do our best to keep Wait-Listers informed about the status of available seating, but Wait Listers who haven't heard anything by noon the day of the event can assume there has been no change in status.
