Expo Hall: Training Technologies Stage
We are experiencing a formidable change in human history, where technology moves from becoming a physical aid, even cognitive extension, to enhancing human performance. We are on the verge of something very big and very powerful, where machines trump man. In this session we will explore topics such as artificial general intelligence (AI) and the search for universal learning algorithms. You will see how through adaptive learning, online learning will deliver intelligent, responsive learning experience. You will learn how the inevitability of techniques used by the likes of Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Netflix are being used in online learning.
