Speech title: Being Mortal in the age of Artificial Intelligence

We live in a golden age where technology influences every facet of our daily lives. This is especially true with the coming of “Artificial Intelligence” (AI). AI is everywhere - from virtual assistants like Alexa, Google Home and Siri to aiding the creation of new disruptive technology like autonomous cars, blockchain and cryptocurrency. Areas of healthcare, finance, retail, customer analytics and manufacturing have already started seeing positive effects of using AI, many of which we would have never thought is possible just a few years ago. At the same time, we have downsides of using AI, such as how it can easily be influenced on issues of race, culture and diversity, making it a burden to society.

In this talk, I will discuss the origins of AI, debunk some of the myths surrounding artificial neural networks and discuss how AI could have an unprecedented positive effect on human life if used in the right way.
