Artificial intelligence, just like the personal computer and mobile phone, is transforming the world we live in. The College of Health & Human Performance (HHP) is focused on bringing AI to change the way we diagnose diseases like Parkinson’s disease and approach public health issues like obesity and addiction. In addition, travel, tourism, hospitality, sports and sporting events, like all other industries, have become increasingly digitized. Researchers are focused on analyzing big data and gaining wisdom from the use of machine learning.
We invite you to hear from HHP researchers, as well as invited guests and alumni, about how AI is being incorporated into the way we live, work and play.
The Department of Tourism, Hospitality and Event Management at UF College of Health & Human Performance welcomes Jochen Wirtz, Ph.D., vice dean and professor at the National University of Singapore, for the HHP Speaker Series in Artificial Intelligence.
