CollaborativeResearch Seminar Series: A short introduction to AI research and language modeling 

10:15 -- 12:00

Presenter: Arne Jönsson, professor at the Department of Computer and Information Science. In this presentation, I will first give a historical perspective of AI research and its implications for current research. I will briefly introduce the two major techniques for building AI systems, the symbolic and the sub symbolic approaches. Finally, I will say something about my own research on automatic text adaptation for increased digital inclusion and present recent research on language technology, leading among other things, to the large language models that recently were released, such as GPTchat.
