Third Wave AI: The Coming Revolution in Artificial Intelligence
Presented by Six Kin Development. Partnered With SGInnovate and SingularityNET
Artificial intelligence is everywhere, driving a multi-billion dollar industry and radically changing how businesses operate and how people work and play. Yet as powerful as it is today, major limitations are holding back the realization of AI's true capabilities.
In this talk, we’ll take an entertaining and informative look at where we’ve been, where we are, and where we’re heading with artificial intelligence. We’ll drill down on the major limitations of today’s narrow AI solutions, then discuss how the coming “Third Wave of AI” will overcome these limitations by producing AI with more humanlike abilities, such as contextual adaptation, greatly improved learning, and the ability to generalize.
We’ll then look at some of the incredible new opportunities that will be possible within just a few short years and conclude by examining how Third Wave AI can be a stepping stone to the fourth and final wave of AI, Artificial General Intelligence (AGI).

Let's Talk About AI Ethics & Bias
In the years to come, the ways AI is developed and used will have a significant impact on society. AI will be only as good as the source data. Bad data can contain racial or gender bias. If AI systems continue to be trained with bad data, we will create a long-term problem. In this event, hear from the experts as they discuss how to prevent such a situation and ways to build an ethical and unbiased AI systems.Topics:
Canada’s Perspectives on Advanced Vehicle and Industry Technology
Global industries and governments are racing to bring self-driving vehicles to their streets and – just as importantly – competing to make the greatest strides to capture that market. The 2018 KPMG Autonomous Vehicles Readiness Index (AVRI), which rates major industrial countries on their ability to adopt self-driving vehicles en masse, ranked Canada seventh in overall readiness for a world of self-driving vehicles. Canada’s advantages for developing autonomous technology include a highly skilled workforce and leading work in artificial intelligence.Topics:
