AI has made headlines for amazing proofs of concept in the business world, from online advertising to medical diagnostic tools to speech recognition. But given all this research progress, why aren’t these systems widely deployed yet? Computer scientist Andrew Ng explores three of the top challenges of getting advances in artificial intelligence into the market.
The HAI fall conference brought leaders in cognitive science, neuroscience, vision, language, and other fields to discuss the latest research at the intersection of how humans learn, how machines learn, and how we can learn from each other. The conversation included everything from robotics to natural language to curiosity-driven play, cognitive science approaches to AI, and deep learning techniques applied for reinforcement learning.

The Stanford Digital Economy Lab’s launch event brought together scholars, industry leaders, and policy experts to examine the profound impact AI and digital technologies have had on work and policy. Speakers including SDEL director Erik Brynjolfsson, Greylock Ventures partner Reid Hoffman, Hoover Institution’s Condoleezza Rice, and SEIU’s Mary Kay Henry discussed the transformation of work, policy challenges (and solutions), and robotics frontiers.
The documentary Coded Bias follows MIT’s Joy Buolamwini and other computer scientists and activists as they discover facial recognition technology’s racial bias and push for legislation to protect people from its misuse. Director Shalini Kantayya joined HAI co-director Fei-Fei Li and HAI associate director Michele Elam to discuss the film’s core lessons and the possible future of facial recognition technology.
