Michael I. Jordan: The Most Influential Professor of Computer Science
One of the most famous names in the global AI field that will appear as a speaker at AI Day 2021 is Michael I. Jordan, professor emeritus at the prestigious University of California, Berkeley. He is considered a monument in the field of artificial intelligence and machine learning. Professor Jordan is known for his foundational work in computer science and statistics, natural language processing, and signal processing. Michael I. Jordan is also famous for his applied work in computational biology (a multidisciplinary field that applies computer science and statistics to solve biological problems). His research results have created an important bridge between computational science, statistics, cognitive science and biology.
Prof. Michael I. Jordan has published hundreds of scientific articles. He is also the author, editor and co-editor of 6 famous books – documents that for many years have been considered by researchers, engineers in artificial intelligence and machine learning as a “bedside pillow” textbook. . In 2016, he was honored by Science Magazine as the most influential author in the field of Computer Science.
At the AI Day 2021 event on August 27, Professor Michael I. Jordan will give a speech with the theme: “Aspects of Decision Making in Machine Learning from the perspective of computing, inference and economics”. In the morning of the same day, he also attended a discussion session on “Research and Development of Artificial Intelligence in Southeast Asia” with VinAI General Director – Dr. Bui Hai Hung and other leading professors.
Google Vice President Marian Croak: The future of science and technology
Appearing with Professor Michael I. Jordan in AI Day 2021, there is also Dr. Marian Croak – famous for his work on Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP). This is the basis for millions of current users to make calls directly from computers or mobile devices. Dr. Marian Croak is a person who has made a great contribution to the development of technology with more than 200 patents in different fields.
After 32 years of working, holding a senior leadership role at the world’s leading technology group AT&T, in 2014, Dr. Marian Croak joined Google as Vice President. Here, she is responsible for responsible development of artificial intelligence, making a positive impact on the community.
Recently, Forbes magazine honored Dr. Marian Croak in its list of “50 Over 50” – 50 women over 50 with a vision to shape the future of science, technology and the global arts.
As planned, at AI Day 2021, Ms. Marian Croak will share a practical and inspirational perspective for young people with the content: “Artificial Intelligence in Innovation”, on the morning of August 28.
Andrew Zisserman – Author who laid the foundation for modern Computer Vision
Andrew Zisserman is a research professor at the Royal Society of Great Britain, currently teaching at the Faculty of Engineering Sciences, University of Oxford, where he heads the Intuitive Geometry Research Group.
On the afternoon of August 27, the Oxford University professor will deliver a speech on Artificial Intelligence Day 2021 with the theme: “Recognizing human actions in video”. This is the “forte” of Prof. Andrew Zisserman, who is known worldwide for his important discoveries, laying the basis for Computer Vision such as visual recognition, image and video retrieval. He is one of the researchers who have proven to the world that computer vision can solve problems that humans cannot, most famously the technology to recover 3D structures from sequences of images.
Currently, he is the author of more than 500 scientific articles on Computer Vision and many famous works that are “on the bookshelf” of most people in the field. In 2017, Professor Andrew Zisserman was honored at the Royal Society’s Milner Prize, recognizing his exceptional achievements in computer programming. At the upcoming online event organized by VinAi, the audience will have the opportunity to participate in a live Q&A session with this famous professor.
Dr. Oren Etzioni – A pioneer in applied AI research
Dr Oren Etzioni is the Executive Director of the Allen Institute for AI (AI2) – a non-profit organization with a mission to research and apply artificial intelligence to serve the common good.
Oren Etzioni served as Professor Emeritus at the University of Washington. He has written more than 100 articles and commentary on AI for The New York Times, Nature, Wired and MIT Technology Review.
Dr. Oren Etzioni is a pioneer in research on current applications such as Meta Search – the famous synthetic search model; Online Price Compare – a tool to compare the prices of products on online stores. There are also famous studies on Machine reading and Open Information Mining,…
At the AI Day 2021 event, Dr Oren Etzioni will participate in the content “Artificial Intelligence in Innovation” with projects aimed at developing artificial intelligence for the common good. Notable among these is expected to be the COVID-19 Open Research Dataset (CORD-19) project, which aims to collect information and treat Covid-19.
“Artificial Intelligence Day 2021: Fueling Innovation” will be broadcast live on VinAI Research Youtube channel and social networking platforms on August 27 and 28.
