  • Pitt Computer Science Professor Diane Litman, will present at the XPRIZE + Pittsburgh’s AI Experts Forum

    Artificial intelligence may be humanity's most formidable double-edged sword. Many have expressed their fears of catastrophic consequences, but AI's potential as a positive force is undeniable. This October, the White House Frontiers Conference brought national AI experts to Pittsburgh to speak on the challenges and benefits of the field. In mid-November, the team managing the IBM Watson AI XPRIZE will visit Pittsburgh to engage with Pittsburgh's innovation community, encourage participation in the competition, and to explore opportunities to establish more cooperative partnerships. This event will be held on Thursday, November 17, 5:30-8:30pm at UPMC Enterprises (6425 Penn Ave, #200).
