Demystifying Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Terry Jones is a disruptor. He founded Travelocity.com, the original dot com travel company, and transformed an industry. He then co-founded kayak.com and did it again. Now he’s doing it with his most recent venture, Wayblazer.ai, using artificial intelligence (AI) to change the model of how travel is purchased.

In this talk, Terry will share his unique perspectives on AI and why it is so important to the 21st century. He will delve into the components of AI, the myths surrounding it, the things it can and cannot do, and why its impact will be as big as the browser was yesterday. Perhaps most importantly, Terry will explain the coming “battle for the edge,” how the most innovative companies are working to make it easier and easier for customers to shop and buy anytime using AI. He will take audiences through examples like Google’s Predictive Suggestions, Amazon’s Alexa, Microsoft’s Cortana and IBM’s Watson, and how each is striving to be the most powerful AI platform. He will also discuss the implications of these technologies on the work force and the future of work.

Date: Thursday, September 7, 2017

Time: Poster Session 5 p.m., Lecture 6 p.m.

Place: Joe Crawley Student Union, Milt Glick Ballroom, 4th floor
