Are you a high school student who is confused about what exactly AI is and why it matters? Join us for a crash course on AI, how it is being used to create positive change and what challenges it poses. AI specialists from different industries will talk about how they use AI in their projects and you will have the chance to share your opinions about the ethics of their projects. You'll also have the chance to ask them questions via chat. (Unfortunately, MozFest does not offer breakout rooms in the YouthZone.) Confirmed Speakers: - David Hanson, leading designer of human-like robots including Sophia who sang a duet with Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show - Soraya Hausl, a data scientist in the beauty industry who specializes in tech which generates recommendations and rankings - Jen Selby, a machine learning engineer who works for Blue River Technology, a smart agriculture company which uses AI to improve farming, and former high school teacher
