Artificial Intelligence experts to take part in virtual John McCarthy AI Summer School

Experts and thought leaders in the field of Artificial Intelligence will gather virtually over the next two days for the inaugural John McCarthy AI Summer School.

The RDI Hub building in Killorglin is named after John McCarthy, who is considered one of the founding fathers of the discipline of AI, when he coined the term in the mid-1950s.

The RDI Hub, ADAPT Research Centre and Microsoft will investigate the societal benefits for AI at the event which takes place tomorrow and Friday.

The topics of discussion will include AI around a number of areas including the COVID-19 pandemic, sustainable agriculture, sustainable cities, science fiction and science classroom.

CEO of RDI Hub, Liam Cronin says AI is going to have a truly transformative effect on our lives over the coming years.

He says the aim is that the John McCarthy AI Summer School will become a calendar moment for the development of AI and sharing of knowledge.
