4- ORDENADORES QUE APRENDAN: El “big data” ha concentrado la atención en la informática los últimos años, pero el foco se traslada al “machine learning", un nuevo paso en la inteligencia artificial Hoy en el MAGAZINE de La Vanguardia,  Marta Ricart (con fantásticas fotos de Cristina Reche) ha hecho un excelente reportaje titulado LA CIENCIA TIENE UN PLAN PARA CAMBIAR LA HUMANIDAD con las prioridades de la ciencia para las próximas décadas que pueden cambiar radicalmente a la humanidad.  En el artículo se "ha hecho una lista con unos ámbitos de investigación en los que trabajan muchos científicos, a los que se destina gran inversión o que son un desafío para la humanidad y cuyos avances supondrán, en todos los casos, grandes cambios": Reescribir la genética Materiales Inéditos [...]

The importance of Supercomputing in Artificial Intelligence

December 13th, 2016|

Today I gave a talk about the importance of Supercomputing in the area of Artificial Intelligence as keynote at  #27 CO-SESSION ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN BUSINES event organised by co-society. Attached  you will find the slides of today's talk. In the past, a lot of companies wished they had started thinking earlier about their Internet strategy. I think in a few years from now there will be a number of companies that wish they had started thinking earlier about their AI strategy. I hope that you are not one of these companies.   The importance of Supercomputing in Artificial Intelligence from Barcelona Tech UPC - Barcelona Supercomputer Center BSC

Barcelona Supercomputing Center starts to work on Deep Learning

What is Deep Learning? We can consider Deep Learning as a new area of Machine Learning research with the objective of moving Machine Learning closer to Artificial Intelligence (one of its original goals).  Our research group has been working in Machine Learning for a long time thanks to Ricard Gavaldà who introduced us in this wonderful world. It was during the summer of 2006, also with Toni Moreno, Josep Ll. Berral, Nico Poggi. Unforgettable moments! However, after 8 years we will make a step forward and start to work with Deep Learning. It was during a group retreat held last September when I realise that "Deep Learning"  was an interesting topic thank you to  Jordi Nin. Deep Learning comes from Neural nets conceived in the 1940s, inspired by the [...]
