ENoLL joins European AI Alliance
In April 2019, ENoLL Chairman Fernando Vilariño became a member of the European AI Alliance group. The group serves as a forum for discussion on all aspects of Artificial Intelligence development and its impacts. European Commission identified AI as “an area of strategic importance and a key driver of economic development” which can bring solutions to many societal challenges. As such AI is closely connected to the Living Lab products that are being developed in fields ranging from health to agriculture.
As a member of the European AI Alliance, ENoLL Chairman will participate in a forum with European Commission’s High Level Expert Group on Artificial Intelligence. Their work and discussions will directly contribute to the European debate on AI and will feed in to the European Commission’s policy making.
ENoLL Chairman will draw from the experience and work at the Computer Vision Center (host institution of the Library Living Lab). The research center carries out cutting-edge research in the field of computer vision. Operating in a 2000m2 space devoted to research & development, the center has leading hardware and software resources in computer vision.
What is AI (Artificial Intelligence)?
“Artificial intelligence (AI) is the simulation of human intelligence processes by machines, especially computer systems. These processes include learning (the acquisition of information and rules for using the information), reasoning (using rules to reach approximate or definite conclusions) and self-correction. Particular applications of AI include expert systems, speech recognition and machine vision” (SearchEnterpriseAI)
Some of the most known examples of AI include, but are not limited to:
- Humanoid robotics
- Apple’s personal assistant Siri
- Amazon’s personal assistant Alexa
- Tesla car
- Pandora (music streaming and automated music recommendation internet radio service)
