AI OF DATA AND AI OF MODELS

Nicolas Meuleau

Mr. Nicolas Meuleau, Director of AI Research, UNITY TECHNOLOGIES

 Unity Technologies
 

The impressive successes of Deep Learning in the domains of data mining, robotic perception, and content generation have generated a hype around AI of a magnitude never seen before. Although a great thing for the AI community in general, the excitation over these results tend to overshadow more than 60 years of research in the other fields of AI. However, from the point of view of a business man that needs AI solution available today, many of these techniques are still relevant. From an academic point of view, some of the most impressive successes of AI were obtained by mixing both Deep Learning and more classical AI. In this talk, we will give a quick survey of the different AI paradigms available today, stress their respective strength and weaknesses. Then we will claim that, for many practical situations, the key is to intelligently decompose the problem and then use the right approach in the right place.

DEPENDABLE AND EXPLAINABLE LEARNING (DEEL) FOR CRITICAL APPLICATIONS AND FUNCTIONS

 
Ariel Sirat Mr. Ariel Sirat, General Manager – Aeronautics, Space and Embedded Systems, IRT SAINT EXUPERY  IRT Saint Exupéry
 

Beyond spectacular success of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in several fields, applying it more widely on critical functions or systems in Aeronautics, Space, terrestrial transportation, etc. needs further work. The ambition is to mature AI technologies and related processes up to the point they can be qualified or certified. IRT Saint Exupéry recently launched an integrated collaborative R&T program named DEEL for DEpendable and Explainable AI. It gathers industrial experts and engineers, data scientists, and fundamental researchers to identify and solve scientific and engineering challenges related to AI for critical systems. This will be done in close connection with IVADO and CRIAQ in Montreal, as well as with ANITI, the Toulouse proposal for an AI Institute (3IA). We will show how this extended open innovation can accelerate the whole innovation cycle ranging from fundamental research to actual application of AI from autonomous cars to Aerospace and beyond.

 
 
 
04:30 - 05:00pm

ANITI (ARTIFICIAL AND NATURAL INTELLIGENCE TOULOUSE INSTITUTE) - THE TOULOUSE 3IA PROJECT

 
Nicholas Asher Mr. Nicholas Asher, Research Director, IRIT & Scientific Officer, 3IA  Irit
 

In this talk I will present ANITI, the artificial and natural intelligence Toulouse institute. The theoretical take of ANITI is that while empirical, data driven AI in the form of machine learning algorithms have made great strides in tackling certain problems, they have drawbacks that make them not embeddable in critical systems like aircraft control.  ANITI plans to tackle these problems by marrying data driven AI with symbolic AI.  We think both need each other to advance theory and practice in the field to the next level. Several examples of hybrid AI and how they relate to particular application areas in ANITI will be given.
