A New Kind of Programming: For Humans and AIs

Mar 13, 2017

5:00pm – 6:00pm CT

Programming has always been about turning ideas into reality. But now there's a whole new way to do this---using languages that build in immense algorithmic knowledge and data about the world, and that use machine learning, AI, and new language concepts to automate as much as possible. The result is a dramatic change in the economics of programming, and broadening of what can be programmed and by whom. Every area of human endeavor is going computational--and this talk will explore how programmers old and new can define their roles relative to AIs in this coming revolution.
