Q&A: A powerful look at the future of AI, from its epicenter at Carnegie Mellon

 Image: Tim Kaulen/Carnegie Mellon University Carnegie Mellon has long been one of the best places in the world to get an education in computer science, and within that field there’s now a significant demand for jobs in artificial intelligence. Still, Andrew Moore, dean of the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University sees an “incredible shortage” in people trained in the mathematics and statistics and computer science which underlies making systems autonomous—the AI jobs of the future. Originally from the UK, Moore has a background in statistical machine learning, artificial intelligence, robotics, and statistical computation. He cares deeply about the impact of technology on our society. TechRepublic spoke to Moore about his thoughts on the direction of AI research, ethical issues in AI research, and the biggest problem he…
