Go talk AI at Data Innovation Day 2016

The event seeks public and private sector collaboration on artificial intelligence.

D.C.’s Center for Data Innovation, a global think tank addressing issues in data, technology and public policy, is holding the expansively-named Data Innovation Day 2016 on Oct. 19. The topic to be discussed? “Algorithms, Automation, and Public Policy.” Or, put more succinctly, artificial intelligence.
“The steady advancement of artificial intelligence is rapidly transforming our world with a host of emerging innovations such as self-driving cars, automated financial advisers, and expert medical systems,” organizers write. “While these technologies have incredible potential to generate economic and social good, these breakthroughs may not occur unless the public and private sectors work in partnership.”
That, presumably, is the goal for Data Innovation Day 2016. The speaker lineup includes FTC Commissioner Terrell McSweeny and Terah Lyons, policy advisor to the Office of Science and Technology Policy at the White House on the public side, as well as private side leaders like Greg Corrado, co-lead in Google’s neural networks project.
The event will be held at the Reserve Officers Association at 1 Constitution Ave. NE.
The Center for Data Innovation, you’ll notice, has a lot of thoughts on the promise that AI holds. One we wrote about recently? Bots might be able to help you be happier…
