Scheduled Programming Events Featuring Karl Gallagher
Name of Event
Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and the Future of Work
Rich Weyand (Mod.) The Machine Intelligence Research Institute gives it even odds that all jobs will be done by robots in the not too distant future. PricewaterhouseCoopper has an estimate that 38% of all jobs currently done by people will be done by robots or AIs. So what does a society look like when few people are actually needed to do work?
Roundtable discussion of various and timely science topics moderated by Les Johnson. This is a remarkable panel dating back to the earliest LibertyCons. Everyone gets a say but no one gets to say too much.
Autograph sessions will be located in the Dealer's Room. Authors will cycle through hourly, except for the author's that have their own tables who will be available when they are not scheduled in the program. Limit 5 books (if you bring more, get 5 signed and go to the back of the line.)
