"Artificial Intelligence: the very idea"
A Knowledge Exchange lecture - 12:30-14:30, Sunday 20/11/2011, in the
Exchange, Exchange St, Temple Bar.

"Artificial Intelligence is only 20 years away!" This has been said
every year since the mid-60s. This Sunday, Prof. Kevin Ryan will talk
about why those 20 years weren't, and what happened instead.
This brief talk, to be followed by a long discussion, will contrast what
was promised with what was achieved and try to summarise, in
non-technical language, some of the obstacles to building machines that
equal or even surpass us in intelligence - whatever that means.
Buzzwords to be explained along the way will include Lisp, Strong AI,
Singularity, Expert System, Turing Test and Machine Learning.
