Nearly 250 alumni and friends joined Carnegie Mellon University President Jared L. Cohon and the Boston Alumni Chapter for a special event in Boston on June 9. The event featured a panel discussion on Brain, Mind and Learning —a new initiative at Carnegie Mellon.
- Human vs. Artificial Intelligence: What Will the Future Bring?
- Are computers like IBM’s Watson really that smart? What can they teach us about how the human brain thinks and learns?
- How can a deeper understanding of the brain lead to breakthroughs in autism, Alzheimer’s and dyslexia research?
- How will advances in artificial intelligence shape industries from finance to health care?
A distinguished panel of experts and event attendees discussed the answers to these questions and more.
