Thoughts on Artificial Intelligence

July 14, 2023, 3 pm, Audimax (A030)

Main Building LMU München, Geschwister-Scholl-Platz 1, 80539 München

The Munich Center for Machine Learning invites you to a talk by Professor Jürgen Schmidhuber as part of the Munich AI Lectures. He is one of the best-known researchers in the field of artificial intelligence and will talk about his “Thoughts on Artificial Intelligence” on July 14, 2023 at 3 pm in the Audimax of Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (in German).

The New York Times headlined in 2016: When A.I. Matures, It May Call Jürgen Schmidhuber “Dad”. Since age 15, his main goal has been to build a self-improving AI smarter than himself, then retire. His lab’s deep learning artificial neural networks based on ideas published in the “Annus Mirabilis” 1990-1991 at TU Munich have revolutionised machine learning and AI. By 2017, they were on over 3 billion smartphones, and used billions of times per day, for Facebook’s automatic translation, Google’s speech recognition, Google Translate, Apple’s Siri & QuickType, Amazon’s Alexa, etc. He pioneered the principle of generative adversarial networks (1990, now widely used for deepfakes), artificial curiosity, Transformers with linearized self-attention (1991 - Transformers are the basis of the famous ChatGPT), and meta-learning machines that learn to learn (since 1987). He is recipient of numerous awards, and chief scientist of the company NNAISENSE, which aims at building the first practical general purpose AI. He is a frequent keynote speaker at major events, and advising various governments on AI strategies.

We are very happy to be working closely with the Bavarian AI Network baiosphere, the Bavarian AI Council, the student initiative TUM.ai and the Research Institute of Deutsches Museum (project “IGGI” - Ingenieur-Geist und Geistes-Ingenieure: Eine Geschichte der Künstlichen Intelligenz in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland) to bring this event together. The Munich AI Lecture Series is in collaboration with the Munich Data Science Institute (MDSI) at TUM, the Munich Center for Machine Learning (MCML), the Center for Advanced Studies (CAS) at LMU, and ELLIS Munich.

We look forward to welcoming you to Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München soon!
