Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Real Life Seminar Series

AI in Real Life Series CME 500

How will artificial intelligence change the way you live, work and learn?   What skill sets will you need in the future?

This new series of seminars, which we are calling "AI in Real Life," features leaders from industry and academia sharing insights into the world of artificial intelligence.  Each week, speakers from a range of industries:

  • Explore exciting advancements in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning and separate the hype from reality.
  • Showcase real-world AI applications that are being used to solve problems, make discoveries and change the world.
  • Discuss challenges around ethics, privacy and bias and potential unintended consequences of this technological transformation.  
  • Highlight how AI is changing fields like medicine, law, education, business, entertainment, etc. and affecting the people who work in them.
  • Illustrate the types of skill sets and knowledge students should acquire to successfully implement AI solutions in their fields.

These experts and influencers who are shaping our AI future share their vision and address audience questions. Students of all academic backgrounds and interests are encouraged to register for this 1-unit course (CME 500). No prerequisites required. Register early. The series is open to Stanford faculty, staff, and ICME partners, space permitting.

Seminars sessions are held on Mondays at 4:30-5:30 PM in Hewlett Teaching Center 200.
