Malta Café Scientifique 2019/20: “Say What?” The Language Challenge in Artificial Intelligence

16 October 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Date and Time: Wednesday, 16 October 2019, 7:30pm
Venue: Studio B, Spazju Kreattiv
Price: Free

Could you be replaced by a computer who talks just like you? When we communicate, there is a lot more happening than the simple exchange of information. How do we convey an underlying meaning? How do we make sure the other person understands what we intend to say?

Dr Claudia Borg from the Department of Artificial Intelligence from the University of Malta will help us understand how we process language, and how Artificial Intelligence is trained to understand and use the nuances of human communication. We will also learn how intelligent software systems are learning how to deal with the Maltese language in particular.

Poster thanks to Maria Fenech. Malta Café Scientifique can be found on Facebook, and online. You can now view events and subscribe to our mailing list from the website.

Malta Café Scientifique thanks the STEAM project, Spazju Kreattiv for hosting this event, the University of Malta, and Malta Chamber of Scientists (of which the café forms part).
