THE HUMAN FACTOR IN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
WED 10:15 - 11:00
This is a 2017 presentation
As Artificial Intelligence is gaining more and more attention from the scientific community, many foresee the future filled with machines capable of performing most of the tasks traditionally handled by human beings, and the most pessimistic of us essentially envision these intelligent machines outperforming us for virtually every function and progressively taking our jobs away. However, while AI is maturing, we humans still have a very central role to play in making AI and machine learning reach their full potential. Manual data curation, data tagging and crowdsourcing are key to the main advances that are still being made in these areas. In this talk, I will cover these different concepts and their role in today’s big data landscape, and discuss the human-in-the-loop paradigm in an industrial context.
