Artificial intelligence topic of February 12 WorldCanvass

It’s news to very few of us that artificial intelligence (AI) is no longer only in the realm of science fiction—it’s all around us. But what is it? From disembodied communication partners like Siri and Alexa to targeted marketing, intelligent vehicles, advanced medical diagnostics, and deepening layers of social media analytics, AI is changing the way we live, work, and play. On the next WorldCanvass, an exceptional group of UI faculty and industry leaders in the fields of engineering, technology, education, medicine, and business will discuss the current impact of AI and what they see on the horizon. Join us on February 12 for WorldCanvass: Artificial Intelligence. The program, which is free and open to the public, takes place at MERGE, 136 South Dubuque Street, Iowa City, from 5:30-7 p.m. All are invited to a pre-show reception from 5-5:30 p.m.
