  • Join the LJC for an evening of talks this June with Peter Morgan and Steve Poole.

    In our first talk, 'Towards a General Theory of Intelligence', Peter Morgan will take a look at the latest developments in AI research and implementation.

    The development of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) is going to require algorithms that can take us far beyond deep learning and the simple image classifiers this was originally developed to solve. These AGI systems will need to do things like inductive reasoning, planning and optimal learning. Peter will talk about some of the latest approaches to solving general intelligence now underway using GPUs and other purpose-built hardware as well as algorithmic approaches to solving and building general intelligence systems.

    Peter is CEO at Deep Learning Partnership, a consultancy addressing emerging technologies, especially AI and blockchain
