Machine Learning: A Tool for Good

This year's science symposium examines how machine learning and other artificial-intelligence technologies can benefit people, society, and God's kingdom. Our speakers will explore machine learning's benefits to medical research, humanitarian efforts, security, and Bible translation, without overlooking the technology's potential harms. The diverse range of applications that these talks represent show how wide-reaching machine learning and related technologies are.
