Professor Héctor Muñoz-Avila, from Lehigh University in the US, is now spending part of his sabbatical here at IDI. In the AI group. His research covers several areas, and he is especially well known for his work on combining case-based reasoning with other machine learning and problem solving methods, particularly applied to planning problems and games. Hector will give a talk on Thursday this week:
Time: Thursday 20th, 12.15
Place: Room 454
Speaker: Héctor Muñoz-Avila
Title: Goal-Driven Autonomy; Reflective learning for Real-Time
Alla Sapronova from Uni Research will give a lecture on Forecasting Modelling with ANN for Offshore Wind. The lecture will take place in room 454, Friday, November 1st at 12.00.
Data analysis and forecasting modelling is vitally important for many application. Among them an ongoing Norwegian initiative on developing technologies for offshore wind energy. Uni Research as NORCOWE partner focuses on the AI application for improving weather and energy yield forecast for both long and short time scales. During last three years several projects, both in the academic and the private sector, have been completed. The projects were based on Artificial Neural Network models of different kind: e.g. feed forward network, self-organizing map, etc. Two show cases will be presented in the proposed seminar.
Some prospective NTNU students visited our lab today, to get a glimpse of the projects we are doing. The students were from the second and third grade of various gymnasiums. See them marveling at our swarm robots below.
