Will Artificial Intelligence ever understand human reasoning?


January 24 OF 2019 from 07:00 PM to 09:00 PM

The ESADE Alumni NYC Chapter would like to invite you to their first event of 2019 on Thursday, January 24th.

During this talk, the ESADE professor Núria Agell will address several concepts about reasoning in uncertain scenarios in the field of AI with particular emphasis on how intelligent systems can understand and help humans in the spheres of creativity and consensus. She will outline ways in which such concepts can be applied to real-life management arenas such as helping town planners choose the location of a new factory or helping a master chocolate maker create a new selection of flavours.
