Prof. Zoubin Ghahramani: „Artificial intelligence and machine learning: from understanding computation in the brain to building self-driving cars“
Zoubin Ghahramani FRS, is professor of information engineering at the University of Cambridge and chief scientist at Uber. He is also deputy director of the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence and a fellow of St. John's College, Cambridge.
What is intelligence? What is learning? Can we build computers and
robots that learn? How much information does the brain store? How does
mathematics help us answer these questions?
In this year’s Queen’s Lecture, Professor Zoubin Ghahramani will take you on a journey through the world of machine learning - the invisible algorithms that underlie many of the tools we use every day. These learning algorithms are used to build systems that recognize human speech, translate between languages, recognize faces and detect emotions, customize advertising, recommend products, make financial trading decisions, detect credit-card fraud and email spam, and optimize logistics and transport.
Increasingly these learning algorithms will also help analyze clinical data, make personalized treatment decisions, analyze scientific data and suggest experiments, optimize food production and energy consumption, create new works of music and art, make sense of legal texts, and power self-driving cars, autonomous urban aviation and robots.
It is hard to imagine any area of human life that will not be affected by advances in machine learning.
The Queen's Lectures are supported by the British Embassy and the British Council Germany. This year TU Berlin is celebrating the 20th anniversary of this series of events .
The lecture will be held in English.
