Foundations of Artificial Intelligence
Date & Time
Wednesday, October 6, 2021, 9:30 AM - 10:30 AM
Peter Darveau, P.Eng.

Artificial intelligence (AI), a new wave of technology, is profoundly changing the world and affecting
every aspect of our lives. Since the term was first proposed in 1956, AI has been a frontier subject in
computer science from its inception to present-day “Deep Learning”. From Deep Blue to AlphaGo, from
the snowy walk of robot Atlas to its thrilling triple jump, from the earliest chatbot Eliza to today's virtual
assistants, AI is continually evolving.

Through the use of examples, the audience will learn to use AI to solve practical problems. Each example
introduces AI technology in a real-life situation where results can be visualized either as a dashboard or
in some other form of animation to guide attendees into new AI concepts.
