Applied Machine Learning Days: Generative AI

Generative AI and foundation models promise to change the world as personal computers, the web and mobile computing did before them. To share with you perspectives from the forefront of this transition, EPFL’s Center for Intelligent Systems (CIS) has invited some of the leading academic and industry shapers in this exciting area for an AMLD special symposium to discuss these advances, their transformative potential, and the future risks they pose to society. Join them on 28 August for an exciting day of presentations and discussions at this pivotal moment in the next technological revolution.

The main conference will be followed by an AI policy workshop on 29 August. AI is a key technology of the 21 century. The example of recent advances in the training of Large Language Models like ChatGPT based on foundation models that can be applied to many different human activities are already transforming many aspects of our society promising huge increases in productivity to our economies (McKinsey). This AI policy workshop will explore, supported by input presentations from science, economy, and policymakers how the upcoming EU AI Act and its implementation through the subsequent industrial standards will have to mitigate risk while providing the liberty to positively exploit the benefits of AI for our societies.
