Less Like HAL, More Like Help: Artificial Intelligence Applications In The Real World

Aug 13, 2019

Artificial intelligence is changing technology and is already shaping the world we live in, from using Siri and Alexa to choosing the best route home from work.

Charles Isbell was named John P. Imlay Jr. Dean at Georgia Tech's College of Computing on July 1. He joined On Second Thought to talk about that gap in understanding.


Isbell touched on the way Georgians already use AI to improve daily life, the importance of training diverse local talent in the tech industry, and why imagining the future of AI often sparks both fear and awe.
