Subject: TODAY: Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning Lecture at 5pm

Description:
“DATA, PREDICTIONS AND DECISIONS IN SUPPORT OF PEOPLE AND SOCIETY"

Speaker: Eric Horvitz, Technical Fellow and Director at Microsoft

Horvitz will share directions and results enabled by the confluence of
large-scale data resources, jumps in computational power and advances in
machine intelligence. He will focus on efforts that leverage learning and
inference to help people with decisions, covering work in transportation,
medicine, public health, and interactive systems. He will present projects
that draw from traditional sources of data, such as GPS signals and
electronic health records, as well as efforts that harness more exotic
streams of information, including the use of planes in flight and anonymized
behavioral data drawn from web services. He will conclude by discussing the
promise of leveraging data, learning, and reasoning to enable new kinds of
collaboration between people and machines to address challenges in the
sciences, society, and daily life.
