Attracting Researchers and Research Excellence at Koç University: Experience with Framework Programmes

This talk provides insight into Koç University’s (KU) experience with the European Commissions’s ERC and MSCA programs. Mr. Göker will focus first on the research support/management side of this experience in these two programs. Next, he will shortly discuss the new developments in these programs under Horizon Europe, and what these changes might mean for Turkish universities.

Western Balkans Wiki Month

August is Western Balkans Wiki Month! Our Chapter is organising a month-long action of creating and editing English Wikipedia articles related to science, technology, arts, and humanities in the Western Balkans region.

Free Webinar STEPS TOWARD TRUSTWORTHY MACHINE LEARNING 29/Jul/2021 12:00

How can we trust systems built from machine learning components? We need advances in many areas, including machine learning algorithms, software engineering, ML ops, and explanation. This talk will describe our recent work in two important directions: obtaining calibrated performance estimates and performing run-time monitoring with guarantees. I will first describe recent work Jesse Hostetler on performance guarantees for reinforcement learning. Then I'll review our research on providing guarantees for open category detection and anomaly detection for run-time monitoring of deployed systems. I'll conclude with some speculations concerning meta-cognitive situational awareness for AI systems. Dr. Dietterich (AB Oberlin College 1977; MS University of Illinois 1979; PhD Stanford University 1984) is Distinguished Professor Emeritus in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Oregon State University. Dietterich is one of the pioneers of the field of Machine Learning and has authored more than 200 refereed publications and two books. His current research topics include robust artificial intelligence, robust human-AI systems, and applications in sustainability.
