The Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Carib 2016 conference happened yesterday at the University College of the Cayman Islands (UCCI).
The keynote speaker was roboticist Dave Lavery who works for NASA and spoke to high school students and others about artificial intelligence and his role in building a spacecraft for travel to Mars.
UCCI’s President Roy Bodden said it’s important for students to learn about artificial intelligence.
“As much as 47% of the jobs being done now in the next 20 years will be replaced by robots,” Mr Bodden said.
Cayman 27’s Mario Grey has more.
