A Scientist Walks into a Bar: Artificial Intelligence

A Scientist Walks into a Bar

A Scientist Walks into a Bar is Chicago's premier science-comedy talk show. Join us at the Hideout the second Tuesday of every month to hear from folks studying everything from dinosaurs to black holes-- grab a drink and come explore with us.

Artificial Intelligence

For August's A Scientist Walks into a Bar, we're chatting with Joe Blass, a computer scientist at Northwestern University who studies artificial intelligence (AI) and Law. We'll talk about what AI actually is, how computers can be taught moral reasoning, whether laws can protect us from AI gone awry, and just how afraid we need to be of a robot uprising. Join us on August 13 to learn how best to treat our future malevolent computer overlords!
