How Smart is Artificial Intelligence?

  • High Cotton Brewery 598 Monroe Avenue Memphis, TN, 38103 United States
In the not-so-far future the polar ice caps have melted and the resulting rise of the ocean waters has drowned all the coastal cities of the world. Withdrawn to the interior of the continents, the human race keeps advancing, reaching the point of creating realistic robots to serve them
— A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001)

Wait, this isn't about Haley Joel Osment!

Come meet scientists from University of Memphis that are actively researching and exploring artificial intelligence, and learn what it is beyond what you see on TV.

Doors will be open at 6.30pm. We will have food, drinks and chatting with our new friends until 7, when the action begins!



Doors will be open at 6:30pm. High Cotton Brewery only serves the drinks, so be sure to plan ahead and bring some tasty eats! Enjoy a bounty of drinks (both with and without alcohol) offered by the High Cotton Brewery while chatting with new friends.


Following a brief introduction to taste of science and thanks to our sponsors, we will hear from our speakers with plenty of time between for questions and refills. 

Seating is limited; only a limited number of tickets will be available for purchase at the door. 

Dr Bonny Banerjee

Assistant Professor, Institute for Intelligent Systems and Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering University of Memphis

The goal of Dr. Banerjee's research is to understand how perception and action give rise to cognition from a computational perspective and use that knowledge to build artificial systems that can perceive from, act on and reason with spatio-temporal data in multiple sensory modalities. His research exists at the confluence of artificial intelligence, machine learning, cognitive science, and computational neuroscience, with applications to intelligent systems (e.g., smart biomedical devices, decision support systems, human-machine interaction, ambient intelligence) and algorithms that learn to be efficient by solving similar problems.
