Can Artificial Intelligence replace you?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one of the world’s most important technologies with the potential to have a game changing effect in every sector by enhancing efficiency and productivity, and reducing costs. It offers new potential as well as challenges in our everyday activities. Particularly, the speed of adaptive-intelligence based automation using software systems, robot, chat-bot, avatar, e-Assistants, e-Buddy, is gradually replacing human jobs. This, with new AR, VR, game technology and emotional intelligence poses a new question – can AI do better than you? In his talk, Professor Hossain will discuss his research, linked with this AI enabled world. He will also share his thoughts on the future with AI.
