Artificial Intelligence: An Overview

What is intelligence? And what is artificial intelligence? How did it start and more importantly, what does it do and how do we use it? This presentation will overview these questions and more. We will discuss what are the various types of Artificial Intelligence (AI), how they are implemented, and how they are helpful, with some examples. This is not about programming but rather about knowledge and how it can be obtained. How do we convert data into information and then into knowledge. How is this being done today and how does it infringe upon our privacy. This is an expanding area and needs to be addressed.

About the Speaker

Dr Morantz, a senior member of the IEEE and member of the Computer and the Computational Intelligence Societies, researches methods to improve our decision making. The goal is to understand how pattern recognition and cognitive function are accomplished in the biological world and then to be able to implement this in the machine environment in order to improve the quality of our decision making.

Dr Morantz has his BS in CIS/EE, his MS and PhD in Mathematical Decision Science with a minor in computer science and an emphasis in artificial intelligence. He has taken additional courses in Computational BioScience, Statistical Design Methodology, Design Analysis of Simulation Experiments (DASE) and the sciences in general. He also has over 150 hours from Raytheon Learning Institute as well as numerous other continuing education courses.

Dr Morantz has given many presentations on advanced methodologies around the country and is currently on the editorial board of the International Journal of Data Mining, Modeling, and Management. He also has many publications in this area as well. He is currently a Tech Fellow at Prime Solutions Group Inc, a defense contractor.
