The Ridgefield Library continues its new series called The Future is Now: Artificial Intelligence in 2020, on Thursday, June 18, at 6 p.m., via a live online webinar with Dr. Laxmi Parida who will discuss AI in the Life Sciences.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is no longer confined to Computer Science Departments but has infiltrated almost all other fields of research and even our daily lives. AI has grown exponentially as a news topic and we are surrounded by devices that watch, listen, and even talk to each other! Given its ubiquity, it is pertinent to understand what AI is and what it is not. Is it the “groundwater” for the future’s thirst for convenience and quality of life? Dr. Laxmi Parida will focus on the role of AI in the Life Sciences: its limitations, its current influences and what, she believes, it is poised to achieve in the coming decades.
