This is the first in our four-part lunch and learn series “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the AI Galaxy” with apologies to Douglas Adams.

Self-driving cars. ChatGPT. Cancer detection. Smart speakers. Robots in manufacturing… and even in our homes. AI is seemingly everywhere these days. So what does the average human need to know about the artificial intelligence that is quickly becoming part of our everyday lives?

Knoxville entrepreneur and Lirio Chief Evangelist Patrick Hunt translates complex technical concepts into easily digestible, bite-sized nuggets of helpful information.

In this episode recorded on May 4, Patrick reviews a working definition of artificial intelligence, a brief history of the technology and science behind it, and various types of AI and the use cases to which they typically apply.

A video recording of this event is available on Internet Archive. We thank Knoxville Community Media for these recordings.
