During Innovate.LA the AI LA community (https://joinai.la/) will be hosting a talk on Artificial General Intelligence with one of our own members Michael Miller.
RSVP HERE (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/ai-la-building-minds-with-patterns-tickets-39429702301)
Since the 1956 Dartmouth Workshop where John McCarthy coined the term Artificial Intelligence (AI), the goal of this community has been to create generally intelligent machines who think. After 60 years of research are we closer to engineering such systems, and if so, what approaches seem the most promising?
In this talk we'll define terms, ask how these systems can be built, and explore possible answers.
We will have some wine and beer.
