About the Event
The field of Artificial Intelligence is enjoying renewed attention today, both for its pervasive influence on a wide range of technologies, and for excitement and concerns raised about its potentially transformative effects in the longer-term future. Predicting the future of AI is treacherous, but we should expect to deal with autonomous agents in increasing scope and numbers across a wide range of domains: transportation, social networks, finance, and military conflict, to name a few. Experience in regulating these agents will prepare us for the brave new world of coexisting human and computational decision makers.
Michael P. Wellman has enjoyed his place on the faculty of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Michigan since joining as Assistant Professor in 1992. This followed four years of active duty service in the US Air Force and nine years of undergraduate and graduate study at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Wellman is proud advisor of 20 graduated PhDs, and teacher of a multitude of undergraduate and graduate students.
