Kai-Fu Lee—a world leading artificial intelligence expert, venture capitalist, author, and founder of Google China and Microsoft Research Asia—will discuss artificial intelligence in Oak Ridge on Monday.
The May 6 talk is titled “Making AI Work.”
The public is invited to attend a community reception for, and also lecture by, Lee at Pollard Auditorium from 5:30-7:30 p.m., a press release said.
Lee, a 1979 Oak Ridge High School graduate, is being hosted by the Oak Ridge Public Schools Education Foundation, UT-Battelle, Oak Ridge Associated Universities, and Friends of Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the press release said.
Lee will be available to sign his most recent, best-selling book, “AI Super-Powers: China, Silicon Valley and the New World Order,” during the reception from 5:30-6:30, the press release said. Copies of the book will be available for purchase courtesy of The Ferrell Shop.
Lee is currently the chairman and chief executive officer of Sinovation Ventures, a Chinese technology investment firm focusing on support and development of new technological innovations, the press release said. Lee appeared on the CBS television show, “60 Minutes,” in February to discuss the impact of artificial intelligence advances on future society. John Sculley, a former CEO of Apple, reviewed Kai-Fu’s AI book and wrote: “Having worked with both of them, Kai-Fu’s brilliance for understanding and explaining the new AI world order is comparable to how Steve Jobs explained how personal computing would fundamentally change humanity. Kai-Fu’s book is that good.”
More information will be added as it becomes available.
