  • Gibbons Lectures - AI: from Aristotle to deep learning machines (Science Event Tags, Conferences, Lectures, Seminars, Computer Science) Event as iCalendar
    04 May 2017, 6:30pm
    The talk presents briefly the main principles used in AI, from Aristotle’s true/false logic, through fuzzy logic, evolutionary computation and neural networks, to arrive at the current state-of-the-art in AI – the deep learning machines. One particular such machine, developed in the presenter’s KEDRI Institute and dubbed NeuCube, is designed for deep learning of complex data patterns so as to predict future events.
