Moving Beyond the Bird Brain with Augmented Intelligence
Science has shown that birds can process some elements faster than humans, but this does not make them more intelligent. By the same token, is AI that completes basic recognition tasks far faster than humans really a step forward in intelligence, or are we simply moving towards super-fast bird brains? Instead of artificial intelligence and super-fast ‘bird brains’, we should instead be moving towards Augmented Intelligence, the combination of traditional AI with cutting-edge modeling and simulation tools.

Computational Storage Accelerating AI Applications
Distributing compute power to storage nodes creating so-called computational storage leads to greater scalability, simpler upgrading, and better fault tolerance. The approach is well-suited to modern applications including real-time analytics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, virtual and augmented reality, autonomous systems, IoT, and cybersecurity. It also reduces the strain on system-level resources and networks. It is particularly valuable now that new technologies such as NVMe and persistent memory have greatly increased the speed of storage accesses, often overwhelming the ability of other parts of systems to keep up.

Let’s Chat with Bots!
Why are Chatbots becoming an increasingly powerful AI application? How are they positively impacting every aspect of businesses while making the users happy? In this talk, we will answer these questions by understanding chatbots, the technology that makes them powerful (Natural language processing and Machine Learning) and how they are becoming the new User Interface.

Europe’s “secret sauce” for Trustworthy AI
During the first half of 2019, the EU has developed a full-fledged strategy on Artificial Intelligence based on ethics guidelines and a renewed commitment towards sustainable policy and ambitious investment targets. What are the consequences of the new EU policy for AI developers? What are the likely next steps? Will the EU agenda lead to new forms of sovereignty and protectionism in the global governance of data and digital technologies? Andrea Renda, one of the members of the EU High Level Expert Group on AI, guides the audience through the opportunities and risks of the new EU agenda.
