PAID EVENT! Tickets here: https://nyai27.splashthat.com/ Join us for what's sure to be an awesome night in AI! We're excited to welcome back Dr. Catherine Havasi! She is a frequently a conference keynote speaker and is a landmark figure in the AI world. Dr. Havasi will do a technical deep dive talk (50-60 mins) about Cognitive Architectures and Natural Language Processing (NLP), followed by an open Q&A. We'll wrap the night with a holiday networking social - more drinks, desserts, and conversation! Wine + Beer + Food + Desserts + AI + Networking = The Best Tuesday ever! ABSTRACT:

People who build everything from entertainment experiences to financial management face a dilemma: how can you scale what you’re building for broader consumption, yet maintain the personalization that makes it special? A fundamental tension exists between building something individualized, and scaling it to consumers such as visitors at a theme park, or gamers exploring the latest Zelda adventure. True disruption happens when we overcome the idea that one must sacrifice personalization to achieve mass production -- like it has in advertising, recommendations, and web search. Artificial Intelligence practitioners, especially in natural language understanding, dialogue, and cognitive modeling, face the same issue: how can we personalize our models for all audiences without relying on unscalable efforts such as writing specific rules, building dialogue trees, or designing knowledge graphs? Catherine Havasi believes we can remove this dichotomy and achieve “mass personalization.” In this session we’ll discuss how to understand domain text and build believable digital characters. We’ll talk about how adding a little common sense, cognitive architectures, and planning is making this all possible. SPEAKER BIO:

Dr. Catherine Havasi is a technology strategist, artificial intelligence researcher, and entrepreneur. In the late 90s, she co-founded the Common Sense Computing Initiative, or ConceptNet, the first crowd-sourced project for artificial intelligence and the largest open knowledge graph for language understanding. ConceptNet has played a role in thousands of AI projects and will be turning 20 next year. She has started several companies commercializing AI research, including Luminoso where she acts as Chief Strategy Officer. She is currently a visiting scientist at the MIT Media Lab where she works on computational creativity and previously directed the Digital Intuition group. READING MATERIALS:
