Wednesday from 9:00 PM til 10:00 PM

Skynet - really? How close are we to self aware, self replicating machines? In this fun session learn what computers can do and what they can’t. You think you know. You may be surprised. The emerging focus on Cognitive computing, general AI, Computer Vision, Internet of Things etc signpost the way to new opportunities and new challenges for computers and humans alike.

Get the answers to important questions like: Can we build a Java Skynet yet? Can my computer be my best friend? Will I really be able to program without a keyboard? Can a computer read my mind? Will drones be able to deliver beer at the right temperature?
