Artificial Intelligence: The Cutting Edge with Professor Daniel Guetta

Friday, April 8
10a.m. - 10:50a.m. Eastern | Geffen Hall- Cooperman Commons


Strides in artificial intelligence and machine learning over the last few years have been nothing short of breathtaking. Algorithms can recognize faces, draft advertisements, detect fraud, and invest in the stock market. But how do those algorithms work (or not, as the case may be...)? And what kinds of risks do we expose ourselves to when we allow decision making to become increasingly automated? In this session lead by Professor Daniel Guetta, we will take a deep dive into some more recent advances in the field, followed by a critical discussion of some of the pitfalls that result.

Avoiding a climate catastrophe will require implementation of climate solutions at an unprecedented pace and at global scale, and that will require an extraordinary amount of investment capital, an estimated $125 trillion by 2050 to decarbonize the global economy and limit warming to a manageable 2oC. Investing in the Era of Climate Change with Professor Bruce M. Usher explains the implications of decarbonization for investors and the role that investment plays in addressing climate change.
