Artificial intelligence topic on Wyoming Energy Summit talk

May 27, 2018View for printing

Artificial intelligence and energy production might not be so unrelated, according to a faculty member at the University of Wyoming.

At the Wyoming Energy Summit on Wednesday, Nick Cheney -- a visiting assistant professor in UW's computer science department -- discussed some of the ways in which autonomous machines using artificial intelligence might change the energy sector in years to come.

"I'm not a futurist," Cheney said. "I don't believe, despite working in AI, that artificial intelligence is a thing that will immediately save us all or doom us all. It comes with its own potential risks and benefits. It's really good at some problems and not so good at other ones."
