Open Talent: “Computer Vision and Artificial Intelligence for Good”

You are here

Next Tuesday December 18th, at 7:00 pm, the Open Talent " Computer Vision and Artificial Intelligence for Good"  will take place at the Tech Talent Center.This Open Talent will be hosted by Cristian Canton, Engineering Manager at Facebook.

In this talk, we will review how computer vision and AI in general are used "for good": from detecting objectionable content to fighting terrorism or tackling misinformation. AI has recently found applications that aim at making our world a safer place. Bridging the gap between the state-of-the-art and the solutions needed to address "for good" problems is a growing field of research that is yielding to relevant technological and social impact. We will be covering some of the technical aspects as well as practical and real cases.

This conference will be held in English.
