AI SCIENCE CAFÉ SERIES 2020

Artificial Intelligence is the new phenomenon of the 21st century and has evolved out of the realm of science fiction and at best, a few technologically advanced minds and IT professionals, to everyday topics of discussion and one of the key drivers of the future progress of humankind. The objective of the AI Science Café series, which will consist of five presentations by high profile, world acclaimed experts, is to introduce, present and publicly discuss various topics that impact our professional as well as our personal lives. As AI topics clearly generate more questions than answers, the series will strive to unveil trends and expectations from the inevitable social and technological changes which the future will bring.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the way we live. We spend more time online, with more devices connected than ever before. How do we keep our personal data online private and secure from AI algorithms, both online and in the physical world? Join Michal Pěchouček, a professor of artificial intelligence, as he discusses the role of AI, AI enabled cybersecurity problems and how we can increase our privacy and security online. 

     

Can car-sharing and ride-sharing reduce the number of vehicles in overly congested cities? What are the implications for policy making? The most widely discussed solution to reducing traffic and pollution and improving the efficiency of transport is urban on-demand mobility based on self-driving technology. But can we be safe in a centrally-controlled fleet of self-driving vehicles? Be part of this future-centred discussion!

AI SCIENCE CAFÉ SERIES 2020:
CHRONOROBOTICS - ENABLING ROBOTS
TO ADAPT TO CHANGING ENVIRONMENTS
WITH TOMÁŠ KRAJNÍK
DISCUSSION CHAIRED BY ANTOINE CULLY
29 April 2020
More info | Online booking

Intelligent speakers are now paving the way in the AI scene. Alquist, a social chatbot designed by the Czech Technical University team of students under the leadership of Jan Šedivý, has won second place twice in a row in the Amazon Alexa Prize competition, while beating more than a hundred international academic teams. Come along and be part of the discussion about the development of dialogues for favorite conversational topics.

It is not just us, but also robots who need to adapt to the changes characteristic of natural and human-populated environments. Methods which enable robots to predict the future states of the environment they operate in also contribute to the lifelong learning of socially intelligent behaviours, improve the efficiency of robot operation and increase their acceptance by the people they work with.


 

 





AI SCIENCE CAFÉ SERIES 2020:
SPECIES SURVIVAL - HOW AI SOLUTIONS CAN
SAVE WILDLIFE IN AFRICA AND BEYOND
WITH JONATHAN LEDGARD
DISCUSSION CHAIRED BY HENRY MANCE
20 May 2020
More info | Online booking



Many of the planet’s biodiversity-rich areas happen to be in cash-poor places. What if endangered species could, in effect, pay local communities for their own protection? Jonathan Ledgard explores the AI methodology behind an ‘interspecies money transfer service’. By giving a value to a local species, donated money would be distributed to the local human community.

Part of the SCIENCE CAFÉ SERIES
Science Café is a series of popular science presentations and talks by the best Czech scientists and innovators of today presented by the Czech Centre London. Inspired by the phenomenon of Cafe Scientifique which was first established in the UK in 1998 and spread across the world as a place where anyone could come to discuss the latest ideas in science and technology over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, Science Café is an informal forum for the discussion of current work and interesting scientific issues.
