🤖 Cyborgs are the future: Creating AI products to improve humanity

by Bryce Howitson | at Minnebar spring 2020 (canceled)

Robots & AI are going to take your job! At least that’s the dystopian future two-thirds of Americans expect. AI & ML is now amazingly accessible and being applied across a broad spectrum of society. Unfortunately, this technology is often met with uncertainty. Fear of the robots getting it wrong. Fear of being replaced and much more set up a battle for the next century of work. But the future doesn’t have to be this way!

As technologists, it’s our job to show society the benefits of AI and to build digital tools to improve, not replace human activity. I’ll show you how. I’ll outline current perceptions of AI. I’ll share how computers have had my back. I’ll teach you to identify areas where humans fail. Then, I’ll walk through inspiring case studies of systems created to improve people.
