Speech Title: SocialCar: Integrating Carpooling into Existing Mobility and Public Transportation Systems

Abstract: Recently, global company’s such as Amazon, Google, Facebook, IBM, MS and Top University such as, MIT, Harvard, McGill, Toronto University and so on is going to have an initiative about artificial intelligence because that technology has an influence on economy and social situation, and gives an impact to development of new technology.
[Harvard business review]: Many experts are expecting that a big slice of the workforce is about to lose their jobs because of artificial intelligence. By Oxford’s material, 47% of jobs could be automated by 2033. Even the near-term outlook has been quite negative. A 2016 report by the OECD predicts 9% of jobs in the 21 countries that make up its membership could be automated. McKinsey’s report estimates AI-driven job losses at 5% in January 2017. Many researchers predict a net job loss of between 4% and 7% in key business functions by the year 2020 due to AI.
Our research terms will be shorter because of change of ICT and AI. This lecture will deal with current AI research status of global company and University such as MIT, Harvard, and other top Universities. This lecture gives an importance and principle of AI research and neural network such as deep leading or optimization, and also shows how it is useful on mechanical, electronics, computer engineering, and etc. Also this lecture introduces current other AI research topic for SMEs business, researcher, Ph. D students, and master course through my research materials. This lecture suggests future’s vision of AI research.
