In order to enable an iCal export link, your account needs to have an API key created. This key enables other applications to access data from within Indico even when you are neither using nor logged into the Indico system yourself with the link provided. Once created, you can manage your key at any time by going to 'My Profile' and looking under the tab entitled 'HTTP API'. Further information about HTTP API keys can be found in the Indico documentation.
Additionally to having an API key associated with your account, exporting private event information requires the usage of a persistent signature. This enables API URLs which do not expire after a few minutes so while the setting is active, anyone in possession of the link provided can access the information. Due to this, it is extremely important that you keep these links private and for your use only. If you think someone else may have acquired access to a link using this key in the future, you must immediately create a new key pair on the 'My Profile' page under the 'HTTP API' and update the iCalendar links afterwards.

AAAS 2016 - Artificial Intelligence: Imagining the Future
Marshall Ballroom North (Marriott Wardman Park)
Marshall Ballroom North
Marriott Wardman Park
We are in the midst of a revolution in machine intelligence: the art and engineering of getting computers to perform tasks that, until recently, required natural intelligence -- in other words, people. We can speak to our phones, software can identify faces, and algorithms can teach themselves to play Atari video games. Top-of-the-line sedans have the ability to drive autonomously on the open road. Progress has been driven by machine learning techniques, such as deep convolution networks, dating to the 1980s, by Moore’s law, and by continual improvements in machine architecture. Progress is so dizzying that a few futurists, technologists, and philosophers have publicly mused about where the swift ascension of machines is taking us. In this session, leaders from different sectors imagine a few of these different utopian and dystopian futures. The discussion will be framed by an overview of the current state-of-affairs in AI and the science of consciousness.
Organizer/Moderator Maria Spiropulu, California Institute of Technology
The Technology of (Artificial) Intelligence20m
The talk will discuss the phenomenal progress of artificial general intelligence inspired by the brain as a source of algorithms and architectures such as grid cells used for navigation, or hierarchical cell layers for vision processing. Some examples of systems that demonstrate AI will be given along with a projection of how AI can be used to solve big science questions in the future.
(DeepMind, London, United Kingdom)
The Science of Consciousness20m
The talk explores the relationship between the brain, behavior, and consciousness, that is the ability to experience anything. The talk will summarize what is known about the biology and neurology of consciousness, outline the limits to our knowledge, and discuss the extent to which digital machines can or cannot be conscious.
