In this episode of NBC’s TODAY, anchor Katy Tur joins host Matt Lauer to discuss how the robot industry is taking off in this post-war era.
A robot that is “self-driving” could be just around the corner, and a big step toward that is the arrival of the humanoid robot.
The robot is called AlphaGo, and Tur is one of its most famous creators.
Tur tells Lauer the story of how she built AlphaGo as a child and the lessons she learned from her brother and other mentors.
It’s a story that’s been a theme of the TODAY show throughout its history.
It also comes as a reminder of just how different the future may look from today’s.
We also learn how AlphaGo’s technology can be adapted to a variety of tasks.
We’ll hear about the latest developments in artificial intelligence, and why it could be a boon to the human race.
And finally, Tur talks about what it means to be a woman in the field of artificial intelligence.
