CIFAR Distinguished Fellow Geoffrey Hinton, the world’s leading authority on a branch of artificial intelligence known as deep learning, shared his views on recent advances in artificial intelligence and the prospects for major new progress in the near future.

Hinton was joined on stage by Nora Young, host of CBC Radio Spark, a program dedicated to the big ideas driven by today’s changing technology. Nora explored pressing philosophical issues and facilitated questions from the audience.

The evening included a special tribute to Richard W. Ivey, former Chair of the CIFAR Board for his years of service to CIFAR.
