Varieties Of Elitism: Possible Relationships Between Humans And Machines This is the first in the RAS 2018 Talks series. The speaker, Dr. Chris Santos-Lang, a colleague and an active member of P7000 working group will share his views on why rather than mass-produce identical machines to emulate the best individual humans, perhaps we should build diverse teams of machines to emulate the best human teams. Chris will present his work on man-machine collaboration models and demo open source code for experimentation.
