Can you imagine a robot that can hold a conversation or identify pictures just like a human? Ever wonder what technology empowers Siri, video games, and music and movie recommendations? Artificial Intelligence, or AI, can be used to build remarkable technologies like these.
In this exciting time, Dr. Fei-Fei Li wants to democratize AI, since she believes that AI technology should benefit everyone and not just the privileged. Currently, Dr. Li works as an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University, and directs the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and Vision Lab. She also co-founded AI4ALL, a nonprofit working to increase diversity and inclusion in artificial intelligence.
Watch the video below to hear more about Dr. Li’s discovery of computer science and artificial intelligence as a student. Later in the video, she talks more about her current image recognition research and the importance for diversity in artificial intelligence.
