IIIM’s fifth newsletter is now available. In it you’ll find an interesting collection of topics that touch upon the broad field of Artificial Intelligence. We interview the founders of IIIM’s first spinoff, Aldin Dynamics, and learn about their adventures in the world of virtual reality.
IIIM researcher Dr. Deon Garrett gives us insight into the project of creating more autonomous systems that require less direct human involvement, that could continue to improve well after they are deployed.
IIIM intern Thorbjörn Kristjánsson raises his concerns about the development of artificial intelligence and the ethical aspects and risks of its applications.
In this issue read about: our successful efforts with Rögg ehf to improve search-and-rescue operations and CEO Rögg Baldvin Hansson’s interview on how he turned an inspired idea to practical implementation; IIIM Managing Director Kristinn R. Thórisson’s thoughts on publication licensing; highlights from IIIM & CADIA’s Open Day; and much more from the ever-changing field of AI.
