Last week at Uspiritus, session three of UpstartU 2017 sparked an intensive discussion about the future of technology and what it means. Dr. Roman Yampolskiy from the University of Louisville’s Speed School of Engineering came to have a TED Talk-like chat about Artificial Intelligence, nanotechnology and robotics with David Fenley and the kids at Uspiritus. The kids were engaged and had plenty of questions and opinions to voice. In fact, Dr. Yampolskiy complimented the kids on their intelligent and even philosophical questions, saying that he’s been to numerous conferences with top minds in the field and heard better questions from kids. He definitely got the kids thinking about their future and their education paths, which is what UpstartU is all about!
