Event Details

Location: Honolulu, HI

Join us on 𝝅 -Day March 14th, and hear about AI, the hottest topic this side of Washington, D.C.

Jeffrey Watumull is Director of Artificial Intelligence at Oceanit in Honolulu, and principal investigator on programs for DARPA. He received BS degrees, summa cum laude, in Mathematics and Evolutionary Biology from Harvard in 2009, a Masters of Philosophy in Linguistics from Cambridge in 2010 (as a Gates Cambridge Scholar), and a PhD in Artificial Intelligence from MIT in 2015.  His research has centered on the mathematical optimality of human cognition, specifically in the domain of language. He has published numerous papers, and his work is frequently covered in the media. At Oceanit, Jeffrey has embarked on research to develop strong AI: computational systems equipped with human-level intelligence in domains both specific (e.g., language) and general (e.g., pattern recognition).

Despite his imposing curriculum vitæ, Jeffrey will give us lay folk  a picture of the basics of AI and where it’s headed.

Don’t miss this chance to learn more about AI. Let me know if you’re coming.
