Course Description

The field of artificial intelligence (AI) has experienced significant growth during the past few years, leading to increasing concerns about the likelihood of AI-powered solutions replacing highly trained humans in a multitude of professions, from truck drivers to radiologists.This lecture will provide an introduction to AI, with an overview of its foundations and a rich collection of contemporary successful examples of AI in action. Some of the most important technological and ethical concerns associated with the increased use of AI in contemporary life will be discussed: Will computers/robots replace humans, and – if so – how soon and in which areas? Adopting a balanced and technical approach, and using a rich set of images and videos, Dr. Marques will present a large number of examples of applications of AI that will broaden your view of the field and allow a better understanding of its foundations, applications, and implications.
