September Highlight: Yann LeCun lecture at baiosphere

Turing Prize winner reflects on the future of AI developments

Meta’s chief AI scientist and recently named by TIME Magazine as “one of the world’s most influential people in AI,” Yann LeCun, took on the dynamic baiosphere network in September. From emerging talent to world-renowned experts, AI researchers and developers took the opportunity to attend LeCun’s lecture, which was jointly organized by the Center for Advanced Studies (CAS), Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich, the Munich AI Lecture Series, the Bavarian Academy of Sciences, the Bavarian Research Institute for Digital Transformation (bidt), the Munich Center for Machine Learning, and the relAI Konrad Zuse School of Excellence.

A rousing session with Yann LeCun

Some 650 attendees, both physically present at the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities and tuned in via livestream, were captivated by LeCun’s perspective on the changes toward autonomous intelligent agents. He pointed to positive developments in AI, but stressed that they are still in the early stages. The lecture was not only informative, but also encouraged stimulating dialogues in the subsequent Q&A session.
