“Emerging Information Technologies: Impact and Opportunities” A Three days in house lecture by Dr. (Prof.) Tilak Agerwala


The rapid digital transformation of our world, the exponential improvements in computing, communication, and storage, and the evolution of machine learning are transforming professions in every industry and the very nature of science and engineering research and development. In this series of three presentations, I describe how the confluence of key emerging information technologies can improve human well-being through novel solutions, with a focus on augmenting human intelligence.

Part 1: “Artificial Intelligence & Related Technologies” discusses the emerging technology of Augmented Analytics and the current landscape of Artificial Intelligence and provides examples of solutions using Machine Learning (currently the most rapidly evolving AI technology). I discuss Augmented Intelligence and the future of Intelligent Cognitive Agents, the impact of AI on science, including neuroscience and the social sciences, and the need for more Convergence Research (integrating knowledge, methods, and expertise from different disciplines to catalyze scientific discovery and innovation).
