Venue of the event: Santaka Valley, Kaunas University of Technology

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is usually about making computers and robots able to do things that so far only humans have done, e.g. play chess, drive a car, have a conversation or understand what others think. There is no doubt that artificial intelligence will fundamentally influence our future society and job marked. At the same time there is, however, areas of AI where the machines are still lacking significantly behind us humans, for instance in social and linguistic intelligence. In this event, panellists will first give a general introduction to AI, relate machine intelligence to human intelligence, and then talk more specifically about the challenges in creating artificial social intelligence.
