Join Michael Compton as he examines the present and future of ‘Big AI’ in this 2-part series, which delves into the convergence of new deep learning AI models with unprecedented parallel computing power, massive datasets, and deep corporate investment that is poised to have a transformative impact on all of society.

In the first talk on Wed 3/22/23, Michael looks at the underlying technology, as well as infrastructure, behind the Big Tech language models and discusses the opportunities and challenges in integrating this technology into your business. He examines the sudden rise of transformers and their impressive capability to engage in complex human-like conversation. While this is a fundamental revolution in itself, transformers are not just limited to language but can disrupt almost every corner of our economy in only a few years.

In the 2nd talk in this series, 2 weeks later on Wed 4/5/23, we will look at the arrival of multimodal AI. Beginning with the new “AI Art” generators, we will then look at even more advanced multimodal AIs that can “think” across diverse forms of data, such as vision, audio, olfactory, chemistry, code, text, images, and many others. This 2-part series concludes by considering whether multimodal AI is a key stepping stone towards achieving an Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) that can perform any task that a human can, across a wide range of domains, with or without supervision.
