  • 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.
  • Gibbons Lectures - Home smart home (Science Event Tags, Computer Science, Lectures, Seminars, Conferences) Event as iCalendar

    One of the grand social challenges that developed countries are facing in the 21st century is the problem of an ageing population. This holds in particular for countries with small populations like New Zealand. People expect to live longer than ever before, and they expect that this increased longevity will be enjoyed living an independent, high quality lifestyle in their own homes.
  • Gibbons Lectures - deep learning - what's missing? (Computer Science, Science Intranet, Science Event Tags, Conferences, Lectures, Seminars) Event as iCalendar
    18 May 2017, 6:30pm
    There have certainly been some spectacular improvements in machine learning over the last couple of years, and one has to wonder what comes next? I will talk about recent breakthroughs but also focus on their intrinsic limitations in order to make some guesses about where the frontiers might lie.
  • Gibbons Lectures - The Ethics of AI (Science Event Tags, Computer Science, Conferences, Lectures, Seminars) Event as iCalendar
    25 May 2017, 6:30pm
    As AI becomes more widespread, in the home, workplace and battlefield, with the deployed systems increasingly becoming autonomous, society needs to consider the ethics underpinning and supporting these systems.
