2019 McIver Lecture Series: Artificial Intelligence & the Road Ahead with Professor David Alan Grier

Sunday, October 14th

How should you think about artificial intelligence? The answer to that question depends on your point of view. If you are interested in thought and consciousness and the likelihood of displacing human beings, you will find yourself involved in a debate that is speculative, open ended and a little disconcerting. If you are concerned about your job or the jobs of your children, you will be involved in a discussion that is more concrete and based in economics. This talk will look at some of the recent successes of artificial intelligence, discuss their impact upon jobs and work, and suggest how you might think about the longer term issues. David Alan Grier is a writer, author and speaker on issues of technology, society, & organizations. He is the author of When Computers Were Human, the story of how we organized computation before we had machines do it. The first of three lectures, sponsored by the Trustees of the Needham Public Library in memory of former director Vivian D. McIver.
