The impact of Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems is real and tangible. Across all industries, businesses are designing and developing intelligent and autonomous systems to help create innovative products and to increase operational efficiency. Nevertheless, there still remain many questions along our collective journey of exploration, for instance: Will our new understanding of natural intelligence change the paradigm of future AI? What are the promises and perils of autonomous systems and how should we prepare ourselves to address them? What are some of the emerging technologies that may help create better AI and Autonomous Systems? What are the areas of research and development that we haven’t yet paid enough attention to?

This webinar will present the latest research from MIT’s leading researchers and shed lights on these critical questions in this exciting and fast-moving space.
