Abstract:
Industry 4.0 – What is it and why is it important in today’s world? We are entering the 4th major industrial revolution. The first saw the introduction of steam and water power. The 2nd saw assembly lines and mass production. The 3rd was fueled by computers. Now, we see a 4th, marked by AI, big data, Mobile devices, Industrial Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning, automation and more.
In this session, we will discuss:

  • What has changed from Industry 3.0 to 4.0
  • What do I need to prepare for as we progress through Industry 4.0
  • Digitization: Industry 4.0 Technologies as the Game changer. Why is it significant?

Abstract:
Can you diagnose and fix your car?  Can you reboot your router?
We get along with technology better when we have some operational understanding
of how it works.  As we an approach an age when robots and other artificially
intelligent agents surround us, we must expand our mental models of machines to
include those that display autonomous goal-directed behaviors and even evoke
notions of intentionality.  As a case in point, today’s Conversational Agents
are simultaneously very smart, and very dumb.  This talk will review the
Natural Language Processing and knowledge modeling technologies that give
Alexa and Google Home remarkable and engaging question answering and chat
abilities.  I will offer some fun tips on how to reverse-engineer how these
devices “think”.

Bio:

Eric Saund is a research scientist, developer, and consultant whose work spans multiple fields of intelligent systems, including conversational agents, document analytics, perceptually supported user interfaces, machine learning, and computational vision. Eric received a B.S. from Caltech and a Ph.D. in Cognitive Science from MIT.  He served in research and research management roles at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center, he has published widely, his prototypes have served thousands of users, and he has been awarded 60 patents to date.
