On June 16th, within IAȘI AI community, we’ve hosted the second edition of First steps in AI, an event organized especially for high school or faculty graduates interested to begin or continue their study in artificial intelligence (in Iași).
First step is the one that is getting you started and, with the right foundation, you’ll have what you need to become successful in achieving your objectives.
This was also the idea behind our community event, connecting future students with their professors and creating awareness on the available courses and initiatives covering AI, from undergraduate studies towards doctorate programs.
2020 was a year like no other, a rollercoaster with ups and downs. Covid-19 had a huge impact on our lives and changed the way we work and how we interact.
For IAȘI AI — the artificial intelligence community of Iași, following the activities from 2019, 2020 started strong and, with all the challenges this year brought, there are some great things we can point out.
If you’re reading about IAȘI AI for the first time, learn that IAȘI AI is a community of artificial intelligence enthusiasts, started from the desire to increase the awareness of #AI and its applications…
We’ve had some incredible wins in 2019 and, as we easily step into 2020, it’s also important to look back, appreciate what 2019 meant for IAȘI AI community and learn how we can improve and scale.
If you’re reading about IAȘI AI for the first time, learn that IAȘI AI is a community of artificial intelligence enthusiasts, which started from the desire to increase the awareness of #AI and its applications among technologists, but also creating a favourable context for promoting ideas and initiatives.
One of our dearest initiatives, where, together with professors from “Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University Iași and…
This week we’ve hosted our #26th community meetup, finishing the year strong 💪 with a panel on Research in AI.
Our guests, Adrian Iftene, Associate Professor and Dean at the Faculty of Computer Science Iași, “Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University, Iulian Ciocoiu, Professor and Deputy Dean at the Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Information Technology at the “Gheorghe Asachi” Technical University of Iași, Alexandru Burlacu MD, PhD, FESC, Lecturer at University of Medicine and Pharmacy “Grigore T. …
This week we’ve hosted our 23rd community meetup, an important achievement, as we had the opportunity to meet and join a conversation with Dr. Andrew Ng, co-founder of Google Brain, former VP / Chief Scientist at Baidu and currently co-founder of Coursera and deeplearning.ai.
What is the current state of AI in Romania? What about in Iași? What would be a successful recipe in increasing AI skills and competences? On which areas of research are Universities of Iași focused?
These are just some of the questions we’ve covered within IAȘI AI community December meetup, a panel on AI opportunities with professors from “Alexandru Ioan Cuza” and “Gheorghe Asachi” Universities of Iași.
Through automation, AI will change the way we produce, manufacture and deliver, transforming current jobs and creating new roles aligned with the business requirements.
AI (artificial intelligence) is currently impacting most of (if not all) industries, being used in credit card fraud detection, recommendation systems, virtual assistants and more. The estimations are that, by 2020 AI bots will power 85% of customer service interactions and AI (in general) will boost economic growth rate by 0.8%.
AI is a game changer, disrupting industries, ways of working and transforming work force, creating new roles aligned with the current business requirements.
În ultimii ani, inteligența artificială a generat mult entuziasm în rândul companiilor de tehnologie și investitorilor, creând noi oportunități în domenii precum sănătate, transporturi, financiar sau servicii clienți.
Deși există un interes major, conceptul nu este unul nou, inteligența artificială fiind definită pentru prima dată în 1956 de către John McCarthy, pe atunci profesor al colegiului Dartmouth. Considerat părintele inteligenței artificiale, acesta o descria ca știința și ingineria de a construi mașini inteligente.
Anii următori (the golden years, 1956–1974) au dus la dezvoltarea a noi direcții în inteligența artificială precum natural language understanding, micro-worlds sau rețelele neuronale.
