Is a Mathematician a Robot?

This event has finished Took place on: Tuesday, 13th Feb 2018

Robotics is another of HM Government’s ‘eight great technologies’. Is it possible that in a few years we might have machines with artificial intelligence? 

In this lecture I will describe the mathematics of machine learning and explain its applications to robotics. In particular I will show how the modern ideas of deep learning allow a robot to make sense of the world it exists in, including the ideas behind speech and face recognition. I will also address the important (at least to mathematicians!) question of whether a robot will ever replace a mathematician.

No reservations are required for this lecture. It will be run on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the lecture.

Cost: Free of Charge
