Following up on Mark Riedl's presentation, reporters and artificial-intelligence researchers will discuss what science writers need to know about AI and about who will and should reap its benefits.


Journalists tasked with reporting on the rapid development of machine learning risk perpetuating popular misperceptions of how artificial neural networks and other AI algorithms work and what their limitations are. The panel will ask who will and should benefit from the new technologies being rapidly developed from research on machine learning.
