TOPIC
Media hype around A.I. ranges from embarrassing stories about public chatbot failures to scary tales of impending Superintelligence exponentially advancing beyond humanity's control, and it's often difficult to grasp the current state of real world deployments. Mr. Zachary Mccoy will shed light on where A.I. has been, what currently works (and doesn't) by way of case studies, and where the field may be headed in 2019 and beyond.
