NORA webinar: Recent advances in Tsetlin machines

Speaker: Ole-Christoffer Granmo

About the webinar: Tsetlin machines (TMs) are a new approach to machine learning that is founded on the Tsetlin Automaton by M. L. Tsetlin, a pioneering solution to the multi-armed bandit problem. TMs use frequent pattern mining and resource allocation principles to extract common patterns in the data, rather than relying on minimizing output error, which is prone to overfitting.

NORA webinar: Learning Description Logic Ontologies

Speaker: Ana Ozaki

About the webinar: Description logic ontologies have been used to represent the relevant knowledge of a domain of interest in a formal and machine-processable format. Such knowledge can be applied to constrain the space of hypotheses in learning tasks, to integrate data coming from multiple sources, to support query answering, among others. Understanding how to describe domain knowledge in a concise and interpretable way is a fundamental challenge in artificial intelligence.

NORA webinar: An approach to autonomous drilling: on the importance of balancing performance with risk management and data availability and quality

Speaker: Rodica Mihai

About the webinar: In this talk, Mihai will present an approach to balance drilling performance with risk management and data availability and quality. The implementation of this approach is an integrated part in the demonstration of proof of concept for autonomous drilling in OpenLab, NORCE’s own lab facility that includes an advanced drilling simulator.

Date: 28th August 2020

NORA webinar: What Kinds of Knowledge Can AI Provide? The Epistemology of AI and Machine Vision 

Speaker: Jill Walker Rettberg

About the webinar: AI and machine learning have amazing potential across many fields, but they also represent a fundamentally new way of building knowledge. We have seen that there are pitfalls: there are many examples of AI being easily fooled, or making unexpected mistakes, or producing biased or discriminatory results. In this webinar Jill Walker Rettberg will show us examples of these failures of AI and machine learning. She will present different levels at which machine learning can fail, looking at datasets, proxies, objectives and more.

NORA webinar: Artificial intelligence in healthcare - a Norwegian gold mine? 

Speaker: Klas H. Pettersen

About the webinar: In this talk Klas will present parts of his own research within the field of medicine and neuroscience and he will present his thoughts on “deep medicine”, on how artificial intelligence can improve diagnosis, treatment and healthcare in general. Klas strongly believe that Norway could become a leading European nation within applied AI in healthcare, and he will present an ambitious NORA initiative to support this.
