TEDx Leuven: Intelligence: Artificial or Human

13/03/2020

18:00 - 22:00

Vesalius auditorium Andreas Vesaliusstraat 11 3000 Leuven

TEDx Leuven: Intelligence: Artificial or Human

Humans are remarkable beings. Thanks to their abstract reasoning skills, complex societies and opposable thumbs, they have become the undisputable apex predator and have thoroughly reshaped the face of this planet. We like to think of ourselves as intelligent, rational beings. However, this idea is often disproven. We are terrible at risk assessment, have numerous biases and are susceptible to conspiracy theories. It is hard to convince us ‘rational’ beings, often even with solid evidence. On to the machines then. They are free of emotional ties and rely exclusively on cold, hard data. Surely they will succeed where we can’t? Indeed, frequently, artificial intelligence can outperform trained experts at certain tasks. Yet they currently lack some defining human traits, like empathy and creativity. So what is it that makes a being ‘intelligent’? Can we teach a computer morality and creativity?

Mastercourse “Data Innovation beyond the Hype” – The industrial relevance of advanced AI/ML methods

05/03/2020

13:00 - 17:30

Sirris, Gaston Geenslaan 8, 3001 Heverlee

Mastercourse “Data Innovation beyond the Hype” – The industrial relevance of advanced AI/ML methods

The goal of this session is to give participants a better insight into the type of problems that can be tackled using machine-learning techniques, illustrated by several real-world examples from a diverse set of domains. Among others, the following machine-learning methodologies will be covered: Reinforcement learning, Deep learning, Evolutionary algorithms and Transfer learning.

For each method, its characteristics, advantages and disadvantages will be explained in more detail, as well as the most commonly used algorithm(s) to solve a particular industrial problem. The aim is to guide the participants in making a conscious choice for the appropriate technique in function of the problem setting at hand, as well as the available data (dimensionality, attribute types, etc.) and the expected model requirements (interpretability, accuracy, scalability, etc.).

18/02/2020

09:00 - 17:00

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.
