Bjørnar Tessem: Artificial Intelligence: more than self-driving cars and face recognition
June 6, 2018 @ 2:15 pm - 3:30 pmFree
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? In this talk, we will see that AI is a lot more, with many alternative ways of representing knowledge, reasoning about it, and applying your conclusions. The presentation will touch upon topics like the history of AI, Good Old-Fashioned AI, what intelligence is, and thinking fast and slow.
Bjørnar Tessem is professor in information science at the University of Bergen. His research covers many different topics, including artificial intelligence, location-based media, and empirical studies of software engineering. Within AI he has worked on reasoning with uncertainty, analogical reasoning, and applications in software engineering and fisheries surveillance.
