The Four Ways We Tell Machines What We Want, and How We Can Do Better

Tuesday, September 8th, 12-1:30pm PT / 3-4:30pm ET

Over two lectures, renowned computer science professor Michael Littman will share the major ways in which humans endow computers with their intended autonomous behaviors. If you understand how computers are told, trained, and taught what to do, you will be a savvier consumer and more adept at convincing the machines to do what you want them to do.
