Tata Series on AI & Society: A Fireside Chat with Yann LeCun
14 Mar 2024



Novel generative AI technologies are rapidly transforming every aspect of our society from work productivity and education to how we create content and connect with each other. While such technologies hold the promise to transform our world for the better, they also pose many known and unknown risks that can easily stir uncertainty and ethical concerns in many of us. 

Assessing these risks can be difficult when the inner workings of AI algorithms remain elusive – sometimes even to the experts who build them. If you could ask an expert at the frontier of AI innovation anything, what would your question be?

This fireside chat is a rare and not-to-be-missed opportunity to connect with one of the world’s top leaders in the field of AI: pre-eminent, Turing-Award-winning computer scientist Dr. Yann LeCun.

Dr. LeCun is the Vice-President and Chief AI Scientist at Meta, as well as the Silver Professor of the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University. He is considered one of the most influential experts in the fields of machine learning, computer vision, mobile robotics, and computational neuroscience.

He will be in conversation with Nick Dirks, President and CEO of The New York Academy of Sciences, to discuss complex questions around weighing the technological possibilities of regenerative AI against ethical considerations.


The event is open for registration.
