    E76 - The Smart AF Team - Insights and Observations on AI

    The Austin Forum on Technology and Society team (all employees of Vizias, the AI, HPC, and advanced computing tech consultancy that supports and manages the Austin Forum) shares their opinions about the state of AI as the Austin Forum begins its third “AI April” program of activities. The Vizias team has been using, developing, and teaching AI for years, and every April we get to plan presentations, other events, and podcasts that bring other AI experts to the Austin Forum community. Dr. Luke Wilson, John Lockman, Adnan Khaleel, and Mary Garza talk with Austin Forum executive director and founder (and Vizias colleague) Jay Boisseau about what they are most excited about in AI as we enter April 2024, and what they are most concerned about in AI. Everyone shares why they are excited about different events coming up in the Austin Forum’s “AI April,” and why listeners should participate by registering for these events at www.austinforum.org.
