Duke Alumni Lecture

Hosted by the Duke Computer Science Student Union


Duke alum Cade Metz will discuss his new book, Genius Makers: The Mavericks Who Brought AI to Google, Facebook, and the World, a sweeping look at the rise of “AI” (Artificial Intelligence) over the last 10 years — and the decades of history that made this possible. He will also discuss his time at Duke and his path to becoming a New York Times reporter. He will be interviewed by North Carolina State professor Ross Bassett, before taking any and all questions from students.
