AI Lecture by Yann LeCun - From Machine Learning to Autonomous Intelligence

We are happy to welcome Prof. Yann LeCun, Chief AI Scientist at Meta AI Research and Silver Professor at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University, this September in Munich! We are looking forward to his thoughts on paths towards autonomous intelligent agents, based on a new modular cognitive architecture and a self-supervised training paradigm.

About Yann LeCun

Yann LeCun’s major scientific achievements include the development of convolutional neural networks (CNNs) used in optical character recognition and computer vision, and the creation of the DjVu image compression technology and the Lush programming language. For his groundbreaking work on deep learning, LeCun, along with Yoshua Bengio and Geoffrey Hinton, won the 2018 Turing Award .
