===== Résumé :
Artificial intelligence is at an inflection point, powered by a
confluence of several factors, including leaps in computational
capabilities, growth in data resources, and advances in
algorithms. After sharing reflections about the long-term pursuit
of artificial intelligence, I will focus on recent developments in
AI and on opportunities and hard challenges ahead. I will discuss
key aspirations spanning theory and practice, including the
pursuit of more general artificial intelligence, the mastery of
human-AI collaboration, and on understanding and addressing the
influences of AI advances on people and society.

===== Biographie :
Eric Horvitz is a technical fellow and director of Microsoft
Research. His lifelong curiosity about brains and minds fuels his
pursuit of principles of computational intelligence. Beyond
theory, his has worked to field AI advances in the open world,
with the joint goals of exploring the behavior of systems in
realistic settings and of developing applications that can enhance
the quality of peoples’ lives. His efforts and collaborations
include work to better understand the influences of AI on people
and society, including challenges with robustness and safety,
biases and fairness, and rising questions about the ethical
implications of new forms of automation.  He received the
Feigenbaum Prize and the Allen Newell Prize for contributions to
the field of artificial intelligence and has been elected fellow
of the AAAI, ACM, NAE and the American Academy of Arts and
Sciences. He has served as president of the AAAI, and on advisory
committees for the National Science Foundation, the National
Academy of Sciences, the National Institutes of Health, and DARPA.
He received his PhD and MD at Stanford University. Additional
