The deep learning revolution in Artificial Intelligence, what it means and how you can help
Artificial Intelligence has become a very hot topic and we are all amazed, and sometimes worried, by the new possibilities that the technology is bringing to our lifes. In this seminar I will present and explain the science behind the hype. Recent breakthroughs both in terms of techniques and commercial application will also be presented. Ethical issues will be mentioned along the way and at the end I will explain how the quantum computing community could help AI in a very powerful way. The seminar should contain material both for the novice and for people already acquainted with the field.
