About the August AI Dinner – Truth and Consequences – Artificial Intelligence for Entrepreneurs
Artificial intelligence is going viral right now, thanks to ChatGPT and image generation models like DALL·E·2. But very few people understand what AI is, what it is truly capable of, and especially, what it isn’t capable of. It is critical at this juncture to have a solid understanding of the essence of AI, so you can pursue useful avenues for deploying AI and not be taken in by “AI-washing” or con artists.
In the daily deluge of news about what the technology is achieving, the needs of the entrepreneur are not being considered. We will address how to get your head straight to get in the game, by considering perspectives like:
- Where and how to use foundation models (conversational AI and image generators) vs symbolic AI (classical machine learning such as cluster analysis);
- Where large language models like ChatGPT are useful, where they are not useful, and where they are dangerous;
- ‘Get’ AI at a fundamental level;
- Discover the future potential for new markets opened by AI and how jobs will be impacted;
- Explore the likely and possible evolution of AI over the near term.
About our Guest Speaker: Peter Scott (Ex NASA)
An IT Specialist with Defense and Space Manufacturer, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory for over 16 years, Peter Scott has many years’ IT expertise in enterprise architecture, system engineering, systems analysis, and has authored several instructional books and videos including:
In 2022 the book “Artificial Intelligence and You: What AI Means for Your Life, Your Work, and Your World”. A guide to understanding AI and its impact in accessible and engaging language for all audiences
In 2017 the book “Crisis of Control: How Artificial SuperIntelligences May Destroy or Save the Human Race.” The exponential growth of technology brings enormous benefits but also precipitates two existential threats: bringing bioterrorism within reach of increasingly average people, and enabling the development of more powerful artificial intelligence that could get out of control.
Peter Scott speaks on this topic to groups of all kinds; has given three TEDx talks and testified to the All-Party Parliamentary Group on AI in Britain’s House of Lords and hosts the weekly podcast “Artificial Intelligence and You”.
