Dr. Hannes H. Vilhjálmsson introduced the Ambient Assisted Living project which is aimed at solving some of the challenges presented by the world’s aging population. Dr. Vilhjálmsson envisions a complex system that would allow older populations to remain in their homes and independent for as long as possible. The system would receive streams of information [...]Read more
On IIIM and CADIA’s open day last spring, Dr. Deon Garrett introduced two projects on Machine Learning. The first, Simultaneous Machine Learning of Many Diverse Tasks, involves creating new techniques for developing and evaluating methods for learning multiple skills through interaction with the real world. A second project revolves around improving the ability of artificial [...]Read more

This summer school focuses on original goals of artificial general intelligence;
building machines capable of operating in various different environments and domains, and performing a range of unrelated tasks in a coordinated manner, with a special focus on methodology, integration, and architecture.Read more
The Workshop is focused on the impending paradigm shift from constructionist to constructivist methodologies for building artificial intelligence. Constructionist refers to traditional top-down software design, which places limitations on scaling, while Constructivist refers to self-organizing systems that manage own growth.Read more
Dr. Jacky Mallet, Ph.D. graduate from MIT, will be holding a talk at Reykjavik University on her research on modern banking systems and economic theory titled Analysing the Behaviour of the Textbook Fractional Reserve Banking Model as a Complex Dynamic System.
