Exploring promise and perils of artificial intelligence Sept. 11

Westonite Richard Frisch presents “Artificial Intelligence: What is it? What is it becoming? Exploring its promise and its perils” at the September meeting of the Trumbull PC Users Group of Connecticut., on Thursday, Sept. 11, at 7:45 p.m. at the Trumbull Public Library, 33 Quality St.

Frisch explains how the world is suffused with artificial intelligence (AI) agents. AI helps choose what books you buy, what movies you see, and even who you date. It puts the “smart” in your smartphone and will soon drive your car. AI makes most of the trades on Wall Street, and controls vital energy, water, and transportation infrastructure, he said.

Artificial intelligence has a dark side, too. “We may be forced to compete with a rival more cunning, more powerful, and more alien than we imagine,” Frisch said.

Participants will learn more about what AI is doing today and what it may become tomorrow.

He and his family have lived in Weston since 1987.
