As a grand master of modern artificial intelligence, Yoshua Bengio wants to stop talk of an AI arms race and make the technology more accessible to the developing world.

He talked with us about these topics in a Q&A from November. #EmTechMIT  http://bit.ly/2LX0GUQ 

Bengio has more to say onstage at #EmTechMIT. Stay tuned.

Do you see a future where every company has AI experts?

Yoshua Bengio: What I believe is there will be AI used across all sectors, not just Big Tech. Right now, there’s not enough people to satisfy the demand. It’s probably going to be like this for a while. #EmTechMIT

Yoshua Bengio likened AI specialization to the specialization (or lack thereof) of doctors in the past compared to the healthcare system now. #EmTechMIT

What is the biggest misconception in the field you’d like to correct?

Turing winner Yoshua Bengio: AI is not magic. #EmTechMIT

Will human-level AI ever be able to express emotions?

Turing winner Yoshua Bengio: I believe if, we don’t destroy ourselves before then, there is no reason why we shouldn’t be able to build machines with emotions. #EmTechMIT
