Agoria Academy: Deep Learning Day

18/02/2020

Point Centre, Avenue Georges Lemaître 19, 6041 Charleroi (Gosselies)

Agoria Academy: Deep Learning Day

Vu l’attention énorme dont l’intelligence artificielle fait actuellement l’objet, il n’est pas évident de distinguer les vraies informations des récits futuristes. L’IA est souvent dépeinte comme une matière « trop complexe », réservée aux chercheurs et aux informaticiens. Au travers de cette formation, nous vous démontrons clairement que ce n’est pas le cas et qu’avec la motivation nécessaire, vous pourrez, vous aussi, développer une solution IA au sein de votre entreprise.

Launch of AI4GOOD

18/02/2020

12:00 - 14:15

SPF Stratégie et Appui (BOSA), Bd Simon Bolivar 30, WTCIII, 1000 Bruxelles

Launch of AI4GOOD

The official AI4Belgium plan was officially kicked off in March 2019 by a group of experts. Since then the coalition has been expanding. First working groups on “AI and Ethics” and on “AI and Health” were established, whose work resulted in the development of a strong agenda on these important issues, central to any sustainable AI plan and strategy.

The goal now is to take the conversation to the next level with the launch of AI4Good. The objective is to create a national and European ecosystem focused on the challenges and opportunities of artificial intelligence to solve social and economic issues for the common good. The aim is to shape an ambitious and committed agenda on issues as broad as education, research and policy involving civil society and private actors.

09:30 - 18:30

Faculty of Computer Science, rue Grandgagnage 21, 5000 Namur

Seminar organized by the FOCUS research center, member of the NaDi Research Institute

With its many concretizations in self-driving cars, instant machine translation and recommendation systems, to cite a few, it is difficult to ignore the importance of AI in our everyday life. Research in Artificial Intelligence at the Faculty of Computer Science in Namur dates however back to the eighties. It has been pursued since then among others in the FOCUS research center in study of declarative languages, programming methodologies, expert systems and decision support systems.

This seminar fits in this trends of research. We have the pleasure to receive two professors who will report on the application of declarative languages and models to tackle socio-technical systems and decision support systems. The seminar will include both theoretical talks and hands-on sessions for practicing with tools.

WILL AI PROMOTE GENDER EQUALITY OR MAKE IT WORSE?

20/11/2019

18:00 - 21:00

SAS Institute - Hertenbergstraat 6, 3080 Tervueren

PROMO CODE 20% : AI4BELGIUM20

In a world where inequality between men and women rules in many sectors of activity, the power of AI could help identify, address and possibly solve those inequalities.  Or might make them worse…

Only 22% of AI professionals globally and only 12% of the leading machine-learning researchers are female, according to recent international reports.

Because algorithms learn from real-world data, AI can potentially adopt and reinforce existing social biases. Developers could unconsciously integrate gender biases into their AI systems and perpetrate them in recruiting tools, search engines, face recognition systems, medical diagnosis and loan approval tools.
