Dr. Fei Fei Li, the Director of Stanford’s Artificial Intelligence Lab, took the stage at Innovate! and Celebrate to welcome entrepreneurs, founders, and attendees to the conference with an in-depth discussion of artificial intelligence and explored how AI will be a driver for our future. She discusses what AI technology is already being developed, the challenges scientists are still facing, and the potential consequences for every industry and almost every facet of our lives.
“Learning is the most critical part of human intelligence. This is what we need to enable computers to do. Learning is the path to visual intelligence.”
“Machine learning is helping to address the most important and fundamental problems with artificial intelligence.”
Dr. Fei Fei Li is an Associate Professor at the Computer Science Department at Stanford University. She received her Ph.D. degree from California Institute of Technology, and a B.S. in Physics from Princeton University.
“The algorithm can see a picture and speak human language. We’re seeing computers start to think like humans.”
She is currently the Director of the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Lab and the Stanford Vision Lab, where She works with the most brilliant students and colleagues worldwide to build smart algorithms that enable computers and robots to see and think, as well as to conduct cognitive and neuroimaging experiments to discover how brains see and think.
“Computer vision will be the enabling technological Cambrian explosion, and we’re not that far away from it.”
