Weston AI Symposium: Promises and Pitfalls, April 5


On April 5 from 2-4:30 pm, please join the Science Department of Weston High School for a Symposium/Webinar on the Promises and Pitfalls of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Yes, this is the hit topic of the moment and it’s just a matter of time until the Weston Owl is written entirely by AI which will have figured out shortly my humor (or lack thereof), hot topics for Weston (trees, wetlands, anything that infringes on anyone’s private property, pickleball, anonymous posting and never ever to be left behind: affordable housing) and we shall all be rescued from this blog as our municipal media source.

Where was I? By the way, do you think AI knows how to digress? I wonder. In any case, there are four presentations during the webinar, each looking as interesting as the other, so sit down with a cup of whatever and listen in. Selfishly I am most interested in the presentation which looks at artificial intelligence for Healthcare, Conservation and News Analysis. Now THAT is a wide-ranging presentation. I have almost no hope for understanding the one with atoms and electrons, which have long been stored in Owl archives. I am also excited to learn about DARPA, an acronym I would not have done, and all the secrets about National Security that are sure to be shared by webinar.

You must register in advance by QR code or by this link: http://bit.ly/3mp59FN. This is an all-virtual event and the target audience is HS/ MS students and the Weston community in general. Attendance is capped at 200, so sign up asap!

Go ‘cats!
