The "New Technology Explosion" will be the focus of Dawn or Doom, a day-long conference September 18 at Purdue.
Two of the day's events involve College of Technology personnel:
Noon-1 p.m., "What do you need to know about AI?", Fowler Hall.
Gary Bertoline, dean of the College of Technology, will join keynote speaker James Barrat, author of "Our Final Invention" for an armchair discussion about the future of artificial intelligence.
- 2-2:45 p.m., "Will robots insure our safety or place us at risk?", Loeb Playhouse, Eric Matson, associate professor of computer and information technology
The day-long event (and week-long film series) features more than 20 speakers who will lend their expertise to address the conference topic.
Several College of Technology students will also be introducing the speakers and greeting guests.
