Innovators' Club: Leapfrogging ahead in Artificial Intelligence

A child can recognize an animal species after being exposed to the correct associations a few times. The best artificial intelligence (AI) systems might need to ‘see’ thousands of images to achieve the same level of accuracy. So, despite decades of development and a lot of hype around AI and machine learning, even the best technologies can’t perceive the world as humans do – yet.

To make faster progress in this fascinating field will require radical innovation. “Leapfrogging” (jumping) ahead of current approaches by rethinking AI is the topic of our next Innovators’ Club at the Innovation Center in Darmstadt.

Join Merck’s Global Head of Data Science & Analytics, Helmut Linde, as he outlines a new, exciting vision for the future of AI. Then, network with like-minded individuals and discover how you can work with Merck to shape that future.

Some of the areas Helmut Linde will cover include:

  • A summary of the current state of play in AI developments
  • How our brains create reliable representations of objects, from animals to rocks, even when they are perceived in many different ways in the real world
  • How we can use our current and future understanding of how the brain works to create the next generation of algorithms for AI
  • Results from an early but very promising AI algorithm proof of concept

AI is likely to turn out as the technology that will have the biggest impact on humanity in all of history. This Innovators’ Club is open to anyone interested in the future of Artificial Intelligence and what it means for Merck’s business. In particular, the session will be highly relevant for students, academics and members of research organizations in the fields of mathematics, physics, computer science and neuroscience.
 
We look forward to welcoming you at the Innovation Center!
