Scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems develop algorithms which optimize the well-known spaced repetition method used for memorizing educational material. By using optimal spacing time, the learning process becomes as efficient as possible. Their findings were published in the prestigious journal PNAS on Tuesday.
Behavioral and Brain Sciences has accepted our target article “Resource-rational analysis: understanding human cognition as the optimal use of limited computational resources”. According to the editor we have set a new record with our 53 page long response to the reviewers!
Good news! Our paper “Doing more with less: Meta-reasoning and meta-learning in humans and machines” has been accepted for publication in Current Opinion in Behavioral Sciences.
Prof. Dr. Jan Peters, Head of the Robot Learning Group at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and Professor for Intelligent Autonomous Systems at the Department of Computer Science at the Technical University of Darmstadt, was appointed IEEE Fellow. He is honored for his important contributions to machine learning for robots to acquire motor skills. This work is of outstanding importance for current developments in artificial intelligence in two areas, autonomous robotics and machine learning, in particular reinforcement learning. They have the potential to make more intelligent robots more useful in our everyday lives in the future.
Der Direktor der Abteilung für Empirische Inferenz am Max-Planck-Institut für Intelligente Systeme in Tübingen erhält den diesjährigen Landesforschungspreis Baden-Württemberg. Die Auszeichnung ist mit 100.000 Euro dotiert. Theresia Bauer, Ministerin für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Kunst, hat den Experten für Maschinelles Lernen im Rahmen eines Festakts in der Staatsgalerie Stuttgart geehrt.
An international team of Scientists observed the reptil running across the surface of water – a skill no other more mid-sized creature has. How, the scientists wondered, do geckos manage to walk on water this quickly? The new discovery of the mechanisms geckos employ puts the lizard in the superhero category.
Top European Machine Learning Scientists Join Forces to Establish European Excellence Network for Public Artificial Intelligence Research
Europe's largest research cooperation in the field of artificial intelligence is receiving a great deal of attention from politics, the media, science and people from the Stuttgart-Tübingen region and beyond. Here is a collection of the most frequently asked questions about this initiative.
