A conversation with Peter Norvig, Research Director at Google

Artificial intelligence has for decades been confined to science fiction books and Hollywood blockbusters. But that is changing, and now we are seeing it improve the way people live, work and learn - A.I. is not a distant thing of the future, it is here today.

Google’s Peter Norvig is one of the world’s leading experts on artificial intelligence. He’s coming to Australia in June and UNSW together with Google Australia, invites you to attend a presentation by Peter and a conversation with UNSW’s Professor Toby Walsh to hear about the fundamentals of AI and how it is changing the world we live in.

Peter Norvig is a Research Director for Google and literally wrote the book on Artificial Intelligence (Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach, the leading textbook in the field). Prior to taking on that responsibility he led the group working on Google's core search algorithms, and before that he was NASA's senior computer scientist and head of the Computational Sciences Division at NASA’s Ames Research Center.

We look forward to seeing you at the UNSW for an opportunity to learn more about artificial intelligence and machine learning.
