Event Description

Ensemble is an artificial intelligence, machine learning and data science event held regularly at Peak in Manchester. Like an ensemble model, the event will allow learning through exposure to a diverse set of experiences. Each month, a top researcher from the fields of computer science, statistics or operational research will be invited to present their work. The audience will be made up of data scientists, software engineers, researchers and company CIOs from tech companies and universities.

This will be a great opportunity to learn and network with fellow professionals and academics in the field.


Talk abstract:

In this talk we will summarise some of the detectable trends on AI beyond deep learning. We will focus on the current transition from deep learning to deep semantics, describing the enabling infrastructures, challenges and opportunities in the construction of the next generation AI systems. The talk will focus on Natural Language Processing (NLP) as an AI sub-domain and will link to the research at the AI Systems Lab at the University of Manchester.
