“Artificial General Intelligence – When Can I Get It?” is the name of the webinar scheduled for Thursday, February 9th at 2:00 p.m. EST and it is free to all attendees.

This educational opportunity is sponsored by Smart Data and it will present an overview of approaches to artificial general intelligence (AGI), examples of promising research and commercial AGI activities, and show participants how to critically evaluate academic and vendor claims.

AGI, or strong AI, refers to a domain-independent, machine-based system that approaches or exceeds human performance on any and all cognitive tasks. As the general study of cybernetic systems and modern AI and cognitive computing capture the imagination of civic and business leaders, and fans of science fiction, it is important to be able to distinguish between progress and smoke & mirrors.

Adrian Bowles will be the speaker for this webinar. Bowles is the founder of STORM Insights, Inc. and an industry analyst. He co-authored Cognitive Computing and Big Data Analytics (Wiley, 2015) and is currently writing a book on the business and societal impact of these emerging technologies. He has held executive positions at several consulting and analyst firms. In addition, Bowles held academic appointments in computer science at Drexel University and SUNY-Bingamton, and adjunct faculty positions in the business schools at NYU and Boston College.
