Recently IIIM participated in AIESEC’s Career Days for the fourth time. Career Days is an annual event aimed at students that are interested in internships and career opportunities at Icelandic companies.
IIIM introduced unique opportunities that are offered for students to train and learn from top scientists. As part of IIIM’s academic focus, it has always been highly valued to encourage collaboration with students, as students can benefit from being a part of qualified team, getting access to advanced technologies and developing a better understanding of future possibilities. At this years Career Days, students got a chance to meet our scientists and talk about their work at IIIM. Continue reading Career Days (Framadagar) at Reykjavik University→
At a time of uncertainty in the global economy, it is time to examine accepted economic theories. This is why Dr. Jacky Mallett introduced a very simple simulation of a one product economy with a constant money supply. Working with established equations, Dr. Mallett began questioning theories at the heart of the field. The results of her simulation have revealed that even the simplest economy has complexities that economists do not fully take into account, and that the market can behave in unexpected ways.
Do you want to meet the people behind the presentations and papers? Then join the IIIM at the annual Visindavaka Festival (Researchers’ Night) on Friday, September 28th. Come and visit us in Háskólabíó to learn more about our work and projects, or ask questions about the field and its opportunities.
Here at IIIM we are excited to share with you our first newsletter! The aim of the newsletter is to cast light on the research projects we’re working on, events related to the field of AI and IIIM’s collaborations.
In this first newsletter you can read about Dr. Yngvi Björnsson’s account on IIIM’s and CADIA’s collaboration and Dr. Jacky Mallett’s article on Simulating Modern Banking Systems. There is also a pieces on the RU hosted “Humanobs Constructivist Workshop“, where researchers from around the world came together in a search for answers in the growing field of Artificial General Intelligence.
