IIIT – Hyderabad and [x]cube LABS are pleased to invite you to a talk on “Recent Advances in Artificial Intelligence”, by Dr. Adrian Kaehler, who helped build the world’s first self driven car.
Dr. Kaehler will talk about an emerging technology that is shaping AI, robotics, and our perception of what it is to be human. This technology, called Deep Reinforcement Learning, has been the basis of many high profile advances in artificial intelligence in recent years including such achievements as AlphaGo that not only showed that computers could now beat master players at such difficult games, now serves as a contributor, in its own right, to the manner and style used by these masters. The talk will introduce this topic of Deep Reinforcement Learning, discuss its impact so far, and offer insights on where the technology is going and what we may be able to expect in the future.
If you’re a company or individual looking to understand the latest advances in AI and how to put them to use, this is a must go.
Since the seats are limited, we request you to RSVP here.
In 1996, Adrian won the Gordon Bell Prize for building the highest performance computer in the world. In 2005 he won the DARPA Grand Challenge 1st place award for building what is now considered to be the world’s first functional autonomous car, Stanley, which is now located in the Smithsonian Institute. He holds a Ph.D. degree in theoretical particle physics from Columbia University which, after enrolling in university at the age of 14 and graduating with a bachelor’s degree at 18, he received at the age of 25.
He is the author of numerous papers and patents in these and other subjects, as well as a best-selling book on computer vision, and a second, recently published book on computer vision, Learning OpenCV 3.
Dr. Kaehler ls the CEO and Founder of Giant.AI, an advanced robotics company located in Palo Alto, California.
