Sponsored by the College of Business and Public Policy (CBPP) at UAA, this four-part series begins on Wednesday, January 20 with Russell Frew, most recently chief engineer for Lockheed Martin. Frew will discuss how Artificial Intelligence (AI) has evolved and impacted industry, the Department of Defense, and the intelligence community.
“AI is revolutionizing the business world and our daily lives, including in Alaska,” says Dr. Helena S. Wisniewski, a professor and department chair with CBPP. Her career in government and industry included directing advances in facets of artificial intelligence and their implementation. She now teaches a popular course on the topic.
“At CBPP we are determined to ensure that students are ready to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing work world. We want them to understand how AI is driving much of that change. Students are fascinated with the rapid evolution of AI and how it provides an environment for re-envisioning nearly everything around us—from national defense to healthcare to transportation. We developed this webinar series to explore these topics with a broader community in Alaska and beyond.”
The free AI Webinar Series will be held on January 20, February 17, March 17, and April 21 from Noon to 1 p.m. Alaska Time. Participants may select one or more sessions during a quick registration process.
Future speakers will be announced at a later date.
