The Games Computers (and Humans) Play

Thursday, Nov. 16, 7-9 p.m.

IIC-2001, Bruneau Centre for Research and Innovation

Dr. Jonathan Schaeffer, dean of Science, University of Alberta, will give the fall 2017 Elizabeth R. Laird Public Lecture.

Artificial intelligence (AI) technology is already changing the world, although most of the impact is invisible to the general population. That will change very soon as high-profile applications of AI will profoundly change the way we live, work and play – such as driverless cars.

This talk gives a gentle introduction to AI, contrasting the abilities of humans and computers to solve problems. These differences are illustrated using games.

A reception will follow. Limited parking is available in Lot 17.

Presented by Department of Computer Science
