Acts and conferences


Meaningful privacy and how it is applied in technology will be the focus of 60 privacy preserving leaders from around the globe during the OpenMined Privacy conference Sept 26 and 27 2020 with more than 2000 in attendance virtually.

The future of AI

If you wonder what is next in the evolution towards general AI then this session is for you. We have seen some painful failures of artificial intelligence pointing to a lack of ‘common sense’. Are neural networks really the solution we seek or is a new path needed? Find out what IBM Research is cooking in terms of hardware and software in the never ending quest towards General AI.

Transforming Health Care Through AI Revolutions

I will discuss relevant AI thrusts at NIST on health care informatics, focusing on the use of machine learning, knowledge representation and natural language processing. I will also discuss the need for explanations in AI systems (XAI) and current state of the art in medical XAI.

Disposable Identities are Elemental(s) in IoT

Rob wants to argue that if intent is linked to an incorrect assessment of identity, and thus not central to an ethics of behaviour, then this opens up an actionable set of actors actually at play in the digtial (IoT, 5G, AI) namely: objects (with added connectivity like NFC), machines with built in connectivity, animals & plants (as ecosystems) and humans alike , as they can be treated as entities.

A Rigorous Analysis of Self‐Adaptation in Discrete Evolutionary Algorithms

A key challenge to making effective use of evolutionary algorithms (EAs) is to choose appropriate settings for their parameters. However, the appropriate parameter setting generally depends on the structure of the optimization problem, which is often unknown to the user. Non‐deterministic parameter control mechanisms adjust parameters using information obtained from the evolutionary process.

Actions for Industry: Open Banking

Discover the opportunities and use cases of the open banking movement using Tink’s open platform. Tink, fintech leader in Europe in open banking services (aggregation and enrichment of bank data), opens its platform with a self-service format so that fintech and SMEs across Europe can take advantage of the potential that comes with the open banking movement.

Unconventional Computer Arithmetic for Emerging Applications and Technologies

Arithmetic plays a major role in computing performance and efficiency. It is challenging to build platforms, ranging from embedded devices to high performance computers, supported on traditional binary arithmetic and silicon-based technologies that meet the requirements of today’s applications. In this talk, the state-of-the-art of non-conventional computer arithmetic is presented, considering alternative computing models and emerging technologies.
