Bjørnar Tessem: Artificial Intelligence: more than self-driving cars and face recognition

June 6, 2018. Tid: 14:15 - 15:30

Artificial intelligence, the scare of many a movie, has suddenly become a reality in our lives; media stories about self-driving cars and cameras on the streets that recognize you are found in abundance. The current explosion in AI comes from machine learning techniques like convolutional neural networks and reinforcement learning, but is this all there is to artificial intelligence?

At this point in time AI is considered a success, once again seen as a technology with enormous growth potential. Is there limit to growth? In today's increasingly data-rich society a staggering 10 exabytes are created every day and emerging technologies like the Internet of things (IoT) will substantially increase the data growth rate, and further increase the demand for efficient analysis. Is our current take on AI and computation sustainable? I claim NO. Current data processing approaches and hardware…

Giovambattista Ianni: Intelligence in Video Games – From Pacman to the Angry Birds AI Competition Experience

Abstract This talk aims to introduce by examples the current challenges and trends of Artificial Intelligence facing the broad world of video games. After showing the remarkably simple, yet effective artificial intelligence of Pacman's ghosts, we get back to modern times in which neural networks claim to be the hands down winners in the field. Yet, a small island has not been conquered yet: from AI-assisted level generation to Artificial Players for Angry Birds, the classic deductive AI methods have…

Raffaella Bernardi: An old Artificial Intelligence dream that comes true: Merging language and vision modalities

Abstract In the last decade, there has been an explosion of papers on the combination of the language and vision modalities.  In this tutorial, we will first aim to understand why this is happening, what has made the investigation possible, and where do we stand now. We will see that research has been mostly been driven by applications, but that behind this work there are quite interesting foundational questions. We will conclude the tutorial by zooming into the issue of grounding…

Pekka Parviainen: Introduction to Bayesian networks – the backbone of probabilistic modelling

Abstract In this talk, Parviainen will give an overview of Bayesian networks: what are they, what can be done with them and where do they come from? They were invented in the 1980s, mainly as a result of research by Judea Pearl. Bayesian networks are probabilistic graphical models that represent relations between random variables. They enable efficient probabilistic inference and causal analysis and are found  “under the hood” in many probabilistic models. They have been significant in reasoning with uncertainty…

Enrico Motta: Hybrid AI: Integrating large scale data analysis with semantic technologies

Abstract Over the past 10-15 years we have witnessed a paradigm shift in computer science, brought about by the availability of large scale amounts of data. As a result of this paradigm shift new opportunities have arisen, allowing us to study the dynamics of a variety of phenomena, such as social networks, people’s mobility, shopping behaviours, etc. To this purpose new machine learning and data mining solutions have been devised, which are able to effectively identify patterns in the data…

Abstract Recommender systems is an applied AI technique that we often meet when surfing the web. In many applications of such systems, a larger fraction of the user population are first-time users or are not logged in when they use the service. In these cases, the item suggestions by the recommender cannot be based on individual long-term preference profiles. Instead, the recommendations have to be determined based on the observed short-term behavior of the users. Due to the high practical…

Pablo Gervás Gómes-Navarro: Modelling How People Build Stories from Observed Facts

February 13, 2019. Tid: 14:15 - 15:30

Notice: This particular AI Agora event will NOT be taking place at Media City Bergen. This time, the venue for the event is the Social Science Building, Fosswinckelsgt. 6. Please see details below. Abstract People communicate most often by telling stories based on their experience of reality. In this process, three fundamental ingredients need to be combined: the observed facts as perceived from reality, the knowledge of narrative structure that is shared between the teller and the listener, and the…

Marija Slavkovik: The Jiminy Advisor: Moral Agreements Among Stakeholders Based on Norms and Argumentation

Abstract This lecture introduces the problem of engineering machine ethics and ethical governors in general, and focuses on a recent contribution to this area: the problem of who decides what is right or wrong for a machine. An autonomous system is constructed by a manufacturer, operates in a society subject to norms and laws, and is interacting with end-users. All of these actors are stakeholders affected by the behaviour of the autonomous system. We address the challenge of how the…
