Ever since John McCarthy coined the term AI, the world has become fascinated with machine learning scenarios. Join us in this Meetup session where we will be hosting a debate between leaders in industry, not-for-profit, and academia. In this debate speakers will provide an opening statement to introduce themselves and their opinion on the current state of artificial intelligence. Following on, each speaker will take turns providing insight to questions posed by our moderator and rebutting statements made by their fellow speakers.
