As part of Pres. Obama’s Global Entrepreneurship summit Stanford University will be hosting a conference on the future of Artificial Intelligence. This is an example of the acceleration of a trend we have seen in recent years in which the focus of A.I. has been shifting from the academic community to the business community. How will this trend manifest itself? Who will benefit? How will will it change the fabric of our communities? As Prof. Fei-Fei Li (a participant) said “With all these changes on the horizon, it is exactly the right time to think about AI not only from a technology point of view, but also economical, social, legal and ethical point of view.”

The conference runs from 6:30 to 9:30 Pacific time on June 23rd, you can find the live stream here.
