Associate Professor Arvind Narayanan believes that “For the process of science to work, we, as the public, must understand not just science but also pseudo-science." For the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory's Jan. 16 "Science On Saturday" program, Narayanan reprised a presentation he made in November 2019 at MIT. His topic: the capabilities of artificial intelligence, why we shouldn't believe everything companies say about their "AI"-based products, and how we can recognize flawed AI claims.
