SPEAKER SERIES:
Ask us anything about AI

What do you want to know about artificial intelligence (AI)?

Ask us anything about AI is a Concordia Digital Strategy initiative in collaboration with the university’s Office of Research with the goal of fostering a community conversation about artificial intelligence.

The conversation about AI is fuelled by a large variety of questions that were crowd-sourced from the Concordia community. A curated series of questions was organized from the collection and sent to faculty researchers from various disciplines for their answers.

Four dynamic videos capture the faculty researchers’ thought-provoking ideas and responses to these questions.


What is artificial intelligence?

What are the impacts of artificial intelligence?


What are the dangers of artificial intelligence?

When will artificial intelligence become a sentient being?
