Nov 6–7: Time Machine 2018 in Austin
Now back for its second year, the two-day Time Machine conference promotes the discussion of the future of AI and helps to develop a vision for the field of AI through talks with executives, professors, and industry leaders.
Sessions that will be part of the November 6–7 event include “What Does It Mean to be Human in an AI World?,” “Teammates, Not Tools: Establishing Trust Between Humans and Machines,” “Your Eyes are the Windows to Your Wallet: Vision Tracking, Privacy and You,” “Where’s My Robot: It’s Closer and Further Than You Think,” “Hyperwar: When Machines Do the Fighting and Decision-Making,” “Who’s Really Winning the Global AI Race?” and “Where Do We Go From Here: Creating the AI Future.”
I’m excited to be participating in the second day of content. On Wednesday, November 7 at 10:00 am, I will interview legendary Austin game developer, space traveler and entrepreneur Richard Garriott de Cayeux on the topic of “Beyond Glados: AI In Game Design.”
Time Machine activities occur at Fair Market (1100 East 5th Street). Register here to be part of this forward-thinking event. The event is organized by the Central Texas based AI startup SparkCognition. Amir Husain, the Founder and CEO of this company, wrote the 2018 book “The Sentient Machine: The Coming Age of Artificial Intelligence.”
If you want even more content that tackles AI, then attend these sessions at SXSW 2019. Many of these sessions occur in the Intelligent Future track (scheduled March 8–14), although this theme runs throughout the program.
