Artificial Intelligence: Machine Learning and Pattern Recognition

For as long as there have been computers, research has been done to breathe “artificial intelligence” into them. Although this challenge is far more complex than was predicted by pioneers like Herb Simon in the 1950s, there have been tremendous advances in this area in recent years. The reasons are the continuous increase in the available computing power, major advances in algorithms and a rapidly growing economic interest. In particular, new methods of machine learning make it possible for computers to understand and interpret images, videos, speech and music, which opens up completely new possibilities for interaction with the computer. At the same time, however, these processes can also be easily tricked and often still fail in tasks that are very simple for humans.

The symposium “Artificial Intelligence: Machine Learning and Pattern Recognition” will provide an overview of current advances in artificial intelligence in various research areas. Internationally renowned researchers from Bavarian universities will give lectures. They will show what is possible with artificial intelligence today and how artificial intelligence will influence our lives in the future. At the same time, the limits and dangers of these developments are shown and discussed.
