World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth presents Amir Husain
Arnold Schwarzenegger played one in The Terminator. So did Ryan Gosling in Blade Runner 2049. While Hollywood’s portrayal of sentient machines is both alarming and provocative, Amir Husain, inventor, computer scientist, and artificial intelligence savant, believes the impending “AI 3.0 Revolution” represents the dawn of a new form of intellectual diversity. Diversity that we should embrace to advance medicine, security, resource management, finance, energy, and other critical fields.
In his new book, The Sentient Machine: The Coming Age of Artificial Intelligence, Husain explores the existential questions at the core of AI and its growing importance in our daily lives: Why are humans valuable? What makes us intelligent? And how can we use our intelligence to create other forms of intelligence? Husain deftly explains complex computer science and AI concepts in clear layman’s language to share his vision for a new chapter in humanity.
