AbstractThe past decade has seen remarkable progress in artificial intelligence, with such advances as self-driving cars, IBM Watson, AlphaGo, Google Translate, face recognition, speech recognition, virtual assistants, and recommender systems. Ray Kurzweil and others think that it is only a matter of decades before AI surpasses human intelligence. This symposium will evaluate the extent to which AI currently approximates the full range of human intellectual abilities, and critically discuss the prospects for closing the gap between artificial and human intelligence. Participants will combine the perspectives of computer science, psychology, and philosophy.
