As the founder and CEO of Hanson Robotics, Hanson and his company aim to create robots as socially adept as any human being. A former Walt Disney Imagineer, this entrepreneur and roboticist has been called "genius" by both PC Magazine and WIRED, and earned awards from NASA, NSF and Cooper Hewitt Design.Hanson lives in Hong Kong with wife Amanda, son Zeno, and many robotic children.Dr. David Hanson creates humanlike robots with intelligence, feelings, and expressions, yielding many of the most startling robots in recent years including: the robot Sophia, the walking Albert Hubo, and the android portrait of Philip K Dick. These Hanson robots can see you and talk with you using A.I., and express themselves with a full range of natural facial expressions, and can walk on android bodies such as KAIST Hubo.Dr. Hanson's Ph.D. dissertation,"Humanizing Robots" describes his early work to bring robots to life with scientific, artistic and technological research, and considers the philosophical and ethical implications of creating such artificial lifeforms.By seeking to emulate human bio-systems, from cognition to social expression to locomotion, Hanson hopes to yield machines that are creatively brilliant, truly conscious, and that can deeply care about us. Hanson proposes that only by building such humanlike machines, can we realize safe, benevolent, superintelligent AI.Dr. Hanson’s work is a story of the quest to realize robots with true spark of life, awareness, consciousness, and unleash a better future for humanity, our technological children, and all life.

He came to international fame at the age of 22 as the youngest world chess champion in history in 1985. He defended his title five times, including a legendary series of matches against arch-rival Anatoly Karpov. Kasparov broke Bobby Fischer’s rating record in 1990 and his own peak rating record remained unbroken until 2013. His famous matches against the IBM super-computer Deep Blue in 1996-97 were key to bringing artificial intelligence, and chess, into the mainstream.Kasparov’s was one of the first prominent Soviets to call for democratic and market reforms and was an early supporter of Boris Yeltsin’s push to break up the Soviet Union. In 1990, he and his family escaped ethnic violence in his native Baku as the USSR collapsed. In 2005, Kasparov, in his 20th year as the world’s top-rated player, retired from professional chess to join the vanguard of the Russian pro-democracy movement. In 2012, Kasparov was named chairman of the New York-based Human Rights Foundation, succeeding Vaclav Havel. HRF promotes individual liberty worldwide and organizes the Oslo Freedom Forum. Facing imminent arrest during Putin’s crackdown, Garry Kasparov moved from Moscow to New York City in 2013.The US-based Kasparov Chess Foundation non-profit promotes the teaching of chess in education systems around the world. Its program already in use in schools across the United States, KCF also has centers in Brussels, Johannesburg, Singapore, and Mexico City. Garry and his wife Daria travel frequently to promote the proven benefits of chess in education and have toured Africa extensively.Kasparov has been a contributing editor to The Wall Street Journal since 1991 and is a regular commentator on politics and human rights. He speaks frequently to business and political audiences around the world on technology, strategy, politics, and achieving peak mental performance. He is a Senior Visiting Fellow at the Oxford-Martin School with a focus on human-machine collaboration. He’s a member of the executive advisory board of the Foundation for Responsible Robotics and a Security Ambassador for Avast Software, where he discusses cyber security and the digital future. Kasparov’s book How Life Imitates Chess on strategy and decision-making is available in over 20 languages. He is the author of two acclaimed series of chess books, My Great Predecessors and Modern Chess. Kasparov’s 2015 book, Winter Is Coming: Why Vladimir Putin and the Enemies of the Free World Must Be Stopped is a blend of history, memoire, and current events analysis.Garry Kasparov’s last book is Deep Thinking: Where Machine Intelligence Ends and Human Creativity Begins. (May 2017) It details his matches against Deep Blue, his years of research and lectures on human and machine competition and collaboration, and his cooperation with the Future of Humanity Institute at the University of Oxford. He says,“AI will transform everything we do and we must press forward ambitiously in the one area robots cannot compete with humans: in dreaming big dreams. Our machines will help us achieve them. Instead of worrying about what machines can do, we should worry more about what they still cannot do.” [post_title] => Garry Kasparov [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => garry-kasparov [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2019-09-09 15:57:47 [post_modified_gmt] => 2019-09-09 13:57:47 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => https://aurumbureau.com/?post_type=team-member&p=12698 [menu_order] => 69 [post_type] => team-member [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw )[9] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 12790 [post_author] => 1 [post_date] => 2018-12-05 10:27:30 [post_date_gmt] => 2018-12-05 10:27:30 [post_content] => Award winning Roboticist, Filmmaker, and UC Berkeley Engineering Professor Ken Goldberg is a popular public speaker who combines compelling images and videos in dynamic presentations on emerging AI and Robotics technologies, sharing insights about what isn’t new, what is new, and how we can prepare for the future.Ken trains the next generation of researchers and entrepreneurs in his research lab at UC Berkeley; he has published over 250 papers in robotics and social media and holds 8 US Patents.

Andrew Ng is VP & Chief Scientist of Baidu; Co-Chairman and Co-Founder of Coursera; and an Adjunct Professor at Stanford University. 

In 2011 he led the development of Stanford University’s main MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) platform and also taught an online Machine Learning class to over 100,000 students, leading to the founding of Coursera. Ng’s goal is to give everyone in the world access to a great education, for free. Today, Coursera partners with some of the top universities in the world to offer high quality online courses, and is the largest MOOC platform in the world.Ng also works on machine learning with an emphasis on deep learning. He founded and led the “Google Brain” project which developed massive-scale deep learning algorithms. This resulted in the famous “Google cat” result, in which a massive neural network with 1 billion parameters learned from unlabeled YouTube videos to detect cats. More recently, he continues to work on deep learning and its applications to computer vision and speech, including such applications as autonomous driving.

The tech world is divided between those who believe in the transformative power of artificial intelligence and those who worry about its risks or belittle its capabilities. One thing is clear, though: AI is changing things, and no company can afford to ignore those changes.

We know more about AI than you’re probably aware. Here at Aurum Speakers Bureau, we think the best way to keep up with the times—and keep your organization current—is to follow and carefully listen to the best minds in the field. Technological revolutions can produce extraordinary value, but you don’t want to be on the wrong side of history.

What changes will artificial intelligence bring your industry? What new jobs will it create, and which ones will it automate? How will it change labor and society? Will we ever see the technological singularity?

Those are the questions on the table. Get ready to hear answers as you meet the leading experts on robotics, the top minds in AI, and the futurists who want to change the world.
