|Dr Allan Tucker will be kicking off Science London’s 2015 SciBar series by talking about all things AI.Artificial Intelligence has been a staple of popular culture for generations. From promises of a Leisure Age when robots would do all of our work while we lived in luxury to scare stories where robots turn against their masters. Dr Tucker looks at some of the key figures in AI in the last century through to the state-of-the art learning machines that are all around us today and asks whether we will ever really have intelligent machines that are comparable to humans.
Dr Allan Tucker is a senior lecturer in computer science at Brunel University. His research focuses on designing algorithms that can learn models from data to aid the understanding and prediction of important events (such as disease onset from clinical data and ecological changes in environmental data).
