Neil Jacobstein 
Chair, AI and Robotics Track, Singularity UniversityDistinguished Visiting Scholar, MediaX Program Stanford UniversityHenry Crown Fellow, Aspen Institute NZ Board
Artificial Intelligence has demonstrated impressive technical achievements over the past few years, from winning GO matches against human champions to identifying cardiac risk from retina images.

Self driving cars empowered by machine learning algorithms will likely reduce automobile fatalities from human drivers from 1.3M per year to a small fraction of that number.

AI has been applied productively in virtually every major industry from agriculture to financial services to advanced manufacturing. In spite of the many positive applications, AI algorithms have been used to target voters and impact voter behaviour, violate people's privacy and modify buying behaviour, and automate thousands of jobs.

Neil will discuss why it is critical for New Zealand to understand the trajectory of AI, and its technical, business, and ethical implications.
