Please stop building killer robots - PhxMobi 2020

AI & ML are the future of all technology. But it’s not new and that history (plus popular culture) has taught us to be skeptical of how AI will negatively impact humanity. Killer robots are a pretty popular theme in science fiction after all.

I’ll share my experience living as an imperfect human and how AI is making me better. I’ll also cover case studies of AI in healthcare, job placement, and elsewhere that augment task people do. After this talk, you will start seeing AI applications that already exist and learn to identify opportunities to create AI/ML solutions to improve humans’ relationship with technology.
