Topics for Professor Toby Walsh FAA FACM FRSN

  • What AI can (and can't) do
    AI is transforming our lives. What can it do? What will it do? What should we welcome or fear? It is clear that the next industrial revolution has started. However, there are many misconceptions and fears about where this will take us and if it will improve our lives. AI promises to help lift productivity, improve healthcare & education and tackle many other problems. But it also threatens many jobs, to transform warfare, and to increase inequality. Hear a frank assessment of the risks and the benefits from a leading expert in the area.
  • Future of jobs
    Automation looks set to replace many jobs in the next few decades. How many jobs will really be lost? And what work will be left for humans to do? In this talk, Toby Walsh discusses some of the myths and misconceptions about the future of jobs and injects some realism into how AI and Robotics will change the landscape of work.
  • Generative AI and more
    Generative AI tools like Stable Diffusion and ChatGPT have caught the public attention. But what does this mean for your business? What are the risks? What are the opportunities? What do you need to understand about this technology and more importantly, how can you get in front of it?
  • Machines behaving badly - Ethical challenges in AI
    As we hand over more decisions to algorithms, and give more autonomy to machines, we have to worry about the implications and ethics of these new applications. There are many issues to address from fairness to facial recognition, and from phishing to intellectual property. In this talk, Toby Walsh discusses some of the challenges, as well as some of the proposals to ensure we build machines that act in ethical ways.
  • Many fears about AI are wrong
    Should you be worried about progress in Artificial Intelligence? Will Artificial Intelligence destroy jobs? Should we fear killer robots? Does AI threaten our very existence? Artificial Intelligence is in the zeitgeist. Billions of dollars are being poured into the field, and spectacular advances are being announced regularly. Not surprisingly, many people are starting to worry where this will all end. What should you make of all this? Should you worry? Are you worrying about the right things? And what should we do now to ensure a safe and prosperous future for all?
