Topic: Bayesian Optimisation and its Applications​ By Dr. Sunil Kumar Gupta, Associate Professor in Artificial Intelligence at Deakin University, Australia​ on 4.1. 2019.

Abstract: Bayesian optimisation is a sample-efficient method for optimising expensive black-box functions. It models a blackbox function using a Bayesian model (e.g. a Gaussian process) and uses the model estimated uncertainties about the function values to suggest the next function evaluation. This approach is closely related to well-established reinforcement learning paradigm for sequential decision-making such as Multi-arm bandits, Markov decision processes etc. In this talk, he gave an introduction to Bayesian optimisation and talked about its applications to both machine learning hyperparameter tuning and other real-world applications such as alloy design, short polymer fiber design etc.​

Topic : Challenges for accessing Information in a Digital Society (13th December 2017)

Abstract :  New technological developments empower people to lead more self directed lives with more options. On the other hand, new technologies also lead to problematic use or abuse scenarios which can be harmful for society. In recent years, issues like fake news, undue spread of political influence and other unethical uses of information have caused much attention.
The talk discussed issues relating to such challenges and solutions. Especially content classsification technologies carry the potential for "good"and "bad"use scenarios.In addition, information literacy of new advanced tools was discussed.
