From ChatGPT to Netflix, recent innovations have transformed everyday life. As technological progress and entrepreneurship continue to intersect and evolve, we find ourselves forced to reconcile with the value of tradition. What do we keep and what do we lose? Is the Metaverse an inventive substitute for real-life interactions? Should we aim to live in Smart Cities, fully operated by Artificial Intelligence and IoT systems? How should societies decide which elements should become obsolete, and which are crucial to preserve? Join our Session with Dr. Andrei Khurshudov on November 29 to unlock the path to the future. 

Dr. Andrei Khurshudov is the Director of Artificial Intelligence and Analytics at Caterpillar and a faculty member of the Yale School of Engineering and Applied Science, where he teaches "Smart City Engineering with IoT" (ENAS 800, Spring 2024). Dr. Khurshudov holds a Ph.D. in Engineering and has worked at IBM, Hitachi Global Storage Technologies, and Samsung. He has 20 US patents, numerous publications, conference presentations, and a book.
