Are the Machines Taking Over? Artificial Intelligence Today and Tomorrow.
Kartik Hosanagar / Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

In this class, Wharton professor and tech entrepreneur Kartik Hosanager discusses how artificial intelligence is well on its way to running nearly every aspect of our lives. The technology embedded in web-enabled devices, algorithms, and the programs that power them, make a staggering number of everyday decisions for us: from what products we buy, to where we decide to eat, to how we consume our news, to whom we date, and how we find a job. We've even delegated life-and-death decisions to algorithms; decisions once made by doctors, pilots, and judges.

Professor Kartik Hosanagar will survey this brave new world and reveal the potentially dangerous biases they can give rise to as they increasingly run our lives. He will make the compelling case that we need to arm ourselves with a better, deeper, more nuanced understanding of the phenomenon of artificial intelligence. This class will provide an entertaining and provocative look at one of the most important developments of our time.
