Audrey Chung

Audrey Chung

PhD Candidate in Systems Design Engineering, Faculty of Engineering

In a world with increasingly reliance on computers and robots doing most of our work – from managing our finances, to diagnosing diseases to driving our cars – Audrey will explain how artificial intelligence is created through a process of deep learning drawing on enormous amounts of data to deliver precision.

Justin Carpenter

Justin Carpenter

PhD Candidate in English,                                             Faculty of Arts

Justin Carpenter, on the other hand, will raise concern on what we teach computers, what data we feed and how this is collected. He asks how virtual spaces transform our society and us as human beings? Do we even have the capacity to handle Aladdin’s Jinn once it's let out of the bottle?.
