In the past, Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) was a research area of interest to specialists. Today, A.I. is omnipresent and impacts many facets of daily life. This course will give students an overview of A.I. concepts and controversies that impact everyday life, including autonomous vehicles, language & image analysis as well as social media manipulation. The course will start with basic ideas and issues gleaned from case studies and consider the problem of managing intelligent and sometimes clueless synthetic systems operating amongst humans in specific situations. Students will gain a basic understanding of the potential of future superintelligence, computers with cognitive abilities far exceeding those of human beings. Finally, we will seek to understand how A.I. impacts creative processes at large and ask whether A.I. fundamentally changes the concept of what Art is or might be in the future.

  Course Description
The three credit UB Seminar is focused on a big idea or challenging issue to engage students with questions of significance in a field of study and, ultimately, to connect their studies with issues of consequence in the wider world. Essential to the UB Curriculum, the Seminar helps students with common learning outcomes focused on fundamental expectations for critical thinking, ethical reasoning, and oral communication, and learning at a university, all within topic focused subject matter. The Seminars provide students with an early connection to UB faculty and the undergraduate experience at a comprehensive, research university. This course is equivalent to any 199 offered in any subject. This course is a controlled enrollment (impacted) course. Students who have previously attempted the course and received a grade of F or R may not be able to repeat the course during the fall or spring semester.
