Doug Lenat, Nova Spivak, and Fred Brown will have a panel discussion, moderated by Doug Freeman, on the AI "State of the Union" at SxSW 2015. The past few years have produced an explosion of A.I., with the technology not only breaking into the mainstream of popular culture, but impacting our everyday lives as well. Artificial Intelligence now touches nearly every part of lives, whether we realize it or not – from healthcare to education to travel and any number of tasks and daily interactions.

This panel convenes leading experts across the A.I. space to discuss where the technology currently stands, what challenges it still faces, and how it will continue to develop over the next few years. From the current consolidation of the A.I. market through acquisitions and partnerships, to the development of Cognition-as-a-Service and its rapidly improving adaptability, we’ll look at the trends and opportunities as A.I. continues to underpin and propel more and more of our technological interactions and capabilities.
