The Rise of the Machines: Understanding How Data Accelerates AI

2,041 views

Published on

These are my slides to a keynote I gave at the annual conference of the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP) in Noordwijk, Netherlands on 15 September 2017. They look at how data (and the increase of data sources we create) helps accelerate the power of AI.

They didn't shoot video but the audio is here: https://www.alpsp.org/write/MediaUploads/Conference/1709AIC/Audio/Plenary_5_-_Volker_Hirsch.mp3
