Join our conversation with Distinguished Alumni Award recipient Charles T. Munger

Join Caltech President Thomas F. Rosenbaum as we celebrate 2020 Distinguished Alumnus Charles T. Munger (CERT ’44, CAVU) for his accomplished career as an investor, businessman, and attorney. Munger is director and vice chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, chairman of the Daily Journal Corporation, a director of Costco Wholesale Corporation, and former chairman of Wesco Financial Corporation.

Munger, known for mixing his wisdom with humor, will be in conversation with Jean-Laurent Rosenthal (PhD ’88), Rea A. and Lela G. Axline Professor of Business Economics; Ronald and Maxine Linde Leadership Chair, Division of the Humanities and Social Sciences.

In a year that mixed dramatic social and worklife changes with record-breaking trends in the S&P and the Dow, has there ever been a better time to hear Munger’s perspective?

This Zoom event is free and open to the public. Advance registration is required. The event will begin at 1:00 PM PT and run approximately 60 minutes, including audience Q&A. The recorded event will be posted on Caltech’s YouTube channel.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a remarkable technology that has profoundly impacted our lives. It now beats humans at some of their own games. How did we get here? In this lecture, Professor Yaser Abu-Mostafa (PhD '83) will describe the scientific journey of AI since the 1980s, as well as Caltech's foundational role in its development, providing examples of AI's achievements and its potential. He will also address the hype that surrounds AI, both positive and negative, and put it in scientific perspective.
