Artificial Intelligence (November)

Many of us wanted our own R2-D2 or Robby the Robot. Or maybe we were chilled by Hal in 2001 and The Terminator. Either way, scientists have been working for years to develop artificial intelligence -- a computer than can learn and think like a human. But is it even possible outside of film and television? This month, we'll sit down with Dr. Kazuhiko Kawamura, director of Vanderbilt University's Center for Intelligent Systems, to discuss where this fascinating area of technology is headed. What are the practical applications for AI? How would AI interact with humans? How long until we see AI in our daily lives? Dr. Kawamura is a professor of electrical and computer engineering and management of technology. He is an Associate Editor with International Journal of Humanoids Robotics and Founding Chair of th Service Robot Technical Committee, IEEE Robotics and Automation Society. His research includes Cognitive Architecture and Robotics, Human-Robot Interfaces and Intelligent Systems and Working Memory.

    Hey Phillip. Sorry for the noise. We had committed to doing this with Fido for the year. We are now looking at new locations as we definitely are aware of the noise factor. We may move to Bongo Java, which has a private room we could use. If you have any suggestions, please let us know and we'll check them out.

    I haven't been to Fido's Cafe before and didn't know it would take a while to find a parking space, so I came in late. From where I was sitting it was very hard to hear Dr. Kawamura over the noise of the restaurant. I have difficulty distinguishing voices in noisy situations. Could we find a more quiet venue when Vanderbilt is in session, maybe with a separate room?
