Are Robots Going to Take YOUR Job?

 It is critical that we start to think about the ways that robotics and Artificial Intelligence are going to impact the future of our workplace.

Keynote Speaker

Mary "Missy" Cummings, Ph.D. 

Professor in the Duke University Pratt School of Engineering,

Duke Institute of Brain Sciences

Director of the Humans and Autonomy Laboratory & Duke Robotics

This presentation will outline how to conceptualize and leverage the strengths and limitations of both humans and computers such that humans harness the raw computational power of computers, but also allow them the latitude to apply inductive reasoning for potentially creative, out-of-the-box thinking.

Successful systems of the future will be those that combine the human and artificial intelligence as a team instead of simply replacing humans with robots.
