On Thursday 4th of May 2017 from 16:00-17:15, the BISS Institute organizes in the context of Techruption an ‘Artificial Intelligence and more’ lecture series.

Dr. Visara Urovi, BISS Scientific Staff and affiliated to Maastricht University, is the speaker during the ‘AI and more’ lecture on 4 May 2017.

AI lecture: Autonomous Intelligent Systems
Autonomous systems are quickly emerging in a number of areas: from vehicles, robots, devices and applications that can operate without or little human control. All these systems have in common that they learn as they function and extensively make their own decisions to perform tasks. These technologies can promise great benefits, such as by replacing humans in tasks that are mundane, dangerous and dirty, or by being detailed and precise. The ultimate success of such technology depends on our ability to resolve two key questions: i) How we can design flexible, autonomous systems that can adapt quickly to a changing environment where they operate? ii) How to address a number of social, legal and ethical issues, which are raised by the adoption of such systems?

In this talk we will be looking at those two questions by explaining the building blocks of intelligent systems and by looking forward to identify key design components, which can contribute into addressing some of the social, legal and ethical aspects that those systems introduce.
