Frontiers Webinar on Narrow and Artificial General Intelligence


We are excited to have our expert Professor Sheri Markose moderate an upcoming Frontiers Webinar with a distinguished multi-disciplinary group of Topic Editors who have been assembled to help take stock of the phenomenal success of narrow Statistical Artificial Intelligence and to examine new perspectives on achieving Artificial General Intelligence (AGI).

A unique virtual roundtable on 5th November 2021 (3 pm – 4.30 pm GMT) will accompany the Research Topic to critically examine the above themes while drawing on the considerable expertise of the Topic Editors and participants.
