Description

Join leading researchers Dr. Eric Horvitz of Microsoft Research and Dr. Peter Norvig of Google for an intriguing discussion about the past, present, and future of artificial intelligence, moderated by KQED's Tim Olson. We are extremely fortunate to have Eric and Peter on our stage – they've known each other for several years, and can discuss everything from machine learning to data-driven science, the world of perception, speech recognition, robotics, self-driving cars, and even a computer called Watson. A Wonder Dialog indeed!

Make sure you leave time before or after this event to visit the Museum's new exhibition, Revolution: The First 2000 Years of Computing. Among Revolutions 19 galleries, you will find one devoted to the history of Artificial Intelligence & Robotics, with its featured icon, Shakey the Robot.

We are proud to partner with the Bay Area Science Festival on this Wonder Dialog. This event is also part of the Museum’s Revolutionaries 2011 lecture series, featuring conversations with some of the most distinguished thinkers in the technology industry. We are very pleased that KQED Radio will tape this event, and will broadcast and live stream it on Wednesday, November 30 at 8p.m.
