WILL HUMAN RESOURCES BE REPLACED BY ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE? WHAT CAN IT DO NOW, WHAT CAN IT NOT DO YET?14. května • 13:30 - 14:15 • Forum Karlín, Pernerova 51, 186 00 Praha 8-Karlín
Speaker: Petr Baudiš
Petr Baudis is an Artificial Intelligence expert and a co-founder of the startup Rossum that develops an AI for automated understanding of documents. Rossum’s first product Elis automates information extraction from invoices. Petr was also one of the authors of Git, built the best open source AI program for the game of Go game, and designed neural networks for text understanding that rivalled Facebook’s algorithms.
Every day, we see news about new advances in artificial intelligence related to the machine learning and deep learning technology. Once a computer has been taught to imitate classical painters, next an algorithm defeats the human master in the world's toughest board game, and now you can meet a "self-taught" robot and almost even discuss Shakespeare's sonnets with her. If you've heard about Gartner's "hype cycle," artificial intelligence is just now at the peak of the "hype" phase. Everyone is waiting for Skynet to be born at Google, while analysts are busy predicting that the machines will replace half of all jobs. Everyone panics, except for the people who really work in the field and see how extraordinary primitive technology we still have in hand (unless they talk to the journalists - then it’s “cognitive” instead of “primitive”).
So, what is the real deal with today’s artificial intelligence? Learn more at Petr’s workshop - it will help you to tell the grain of truth in journalistic sensations and what limitations of artificial intelligence still exist. The answer actually lies in a paradox: those logical and rational machines are now the strongest at a seemingly supremely human trait - intuition. From there, everything unfolds: what can artificial intelligence bring us, but also what to fear.
Even though the current artificial intelligence technology has huge limitations, we can overcome it right now, just in a somewhat unexpected way - have it work in a tandem with a person. The better you realize computers’ limitations, the more super-human you can make your employees, and we’ll show you how in a few examples.
