APRIL 2018

CSAIL Alliances Lecture Series | Artificial Superintelligence
Star Conference Room, 32-D463 | Ray and Maria Stata Center
April 19, 2018 | 4:00PM - 5:00PM EST | Registration link

 
Speaker: Jeff Glickman, Chairman and Chief Technology Officer, J4 Capital LLC

Artificial Intelligence systems, including machine learning and neural-based AI systems, have been limited in their ability to respond to situations that are different than they have been trained to address (i.e. new input data that does not intersect with training data set). Is it possible to have a machine respond intelligently to situations for which it has not been trained? The challenge lies in specifying and solving the complex interaction of executive control, goal formation, objective specification, constraint definitions and efficient stochastic topological search.

MAY 2018

Cybersecurity: Technology, Application and Policy
Starting May 1, 2018!
Registration and course information


Early Bird pricing ($100 off) until April 17, 2018!

Course Description:

By examining security challenges in hardware, software and cryptography, this program will introduce the latest research that can help organizations move from 'patch and pray' defenses to security 'by deafult'.

This course will also use case studies to illustrate the impact of the emerging technologies and look at policy implications impacting the field. The program will be taught by a team of world-renowned MIT CSAIL experts.

Internet of Things: Roadmap to a Connected World
Starting May 1, 2018!
Registration and course information

Early Bird pricing ($100 off) until April 17, 2018!

Course Description:

By 2020, there will be 50 billion devices connected to the Internet. How will
you and your organization capitalize on this tremendous opportunity? Join this new evolution in hardware, software, and data by registering for this six-week online offering.

MIT Professional Education’s new Internet of Things: Roadmap to the Connected World course offers important insights on how to overcome these challenges and thrive in this exciting space.

Human-Computer Interaction User Experience Design
Starting May 2, 2018!
Registration and course information


Course Description:
Human-computer interaction (HCI) integrates aspects of computer science, psychology, and design to study the nature of interaction between humans and computers. Each of these disciplines possess a rich history of theory and research, which, in their combination, have contributed to the equally rich and evolving field of HCI.
The Human-Computer Interaction for User Experience Design online short course from the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), will provide you with access to some of the most cutting-edge research in the field, from MIT CSAIL top faculty.

Artificial Intelligence: Implications for Business Strategy
Starting May 2, 2018!
Registration and course information

Course Description:
What is artificial intelligence (AI)?  What does it mean for business?  And how can your company take advantage of it?  This online program, designed by the MIT Sloan School of Management and the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), will help you answer these questions.

Focusing on key AI technologies, such as machine learning, natural language processing, and robotics, the course will help you understand the implications of these new technologies for business strategy, as well as the economic and societal issues they raise.  MIT expert instructors examine how artificial intelligence will complement and strengthen our workforce rather than just eliminate jobs. Additionally, the program will emphasize how the collective intelligence of people and computers together can solve business problems that not long ago were considered impossible.

Cybersecurity@CSAIL Lecture Series: Cybersecurity & AI: A Venture into Reality
Star Conference Room, 32-D463 | Ray and Maria Stata Center
April 19, 2018 | 4:00pm-5:00pm EST
| Registration link

Speaker: Harold Moss, Senior Director of Strategy and Business Development, Akamai Technologies

Discussion about the role of AI for cyber professionals as well as how it is weaponized and how that might evolve. In this talk we will discuss how AI is being used today to attack organizations, and how AI for cyber professionals will evolve to be symbiotic with Security analysts.
Dertouzos Distinguished Lecture Series: From Utopia to Dystopia in 29 Short Yearts
Kirsch Auditorium, 32-123 | Ray and Maria Stata Center
May 2, 2018 | 4:30pm-5:30pm EST

More information

This year marks a milestone in the history of the World Wide Web: more than half of the world's population will be online. However, threats to the web are real and many; frommisinformation and questionable political advertising to aloss of control over our personal data.If a future web were to empower the hopes we had for the original web, what would itlook like? A new web is possible in which people have complete control of their own data;applications and data are separated from each other; and a user's choice for each areseparate. Let's assemble the brightest minds from business, technology, government, civilsociety, the arts and academia to build a new web which will again empower science anddemocracy.
