The One Hundred Year Study on Artificial Intelligence: An Enduring
Study on AI and its Influence on People and Society

I will present an update on the One Hundred Year Study on AI
( I will describe the background and
status of the project, including the roots of the effort in earlier
experiences with the 2008-09 AAAI Panel on Long-Term AI Futures that
culminated in the AAAI Asilomar meeting. I will reflect about several
directions for investigation, highlighting opportunities for
reflection and investment in proactive research, monitoring, and
guidance. I look forward to comments and feedback from seminar
