In a move that will boost artificial intelligence (AI) research across the country, the Government of Canada announced Wednesday the funding of a pan-Canadian AI Strategy to enhance research and recruit talent. Administered through the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR), the $125 million program will promote collaboration between post-secondary institutions in Montréal, Toronto-Waterloo, and Edmonton.
DeepStack bridges the gap between AI techniques for perfect information games with ones for imperfect information games to reason while it plays using “intuition” honed through deep learning to reassess its strategy with each decision.
RBC announces Dr. Richard S. Sutton as head academic advisor to RBC Research in machine learning. RBC Research will establish a new lab and plan to work with Amii to identify and pursue further research collaboration opportunities on an ongoing basis.
In this post, we attempt to understand the principles that underlie the impressive performance of Deep Q-Networks (DQN) algorithm, demonstrated through the Arcade Learning Environment (ALE), and better contextualize its success.
Introducing Amii, the Alberta Machine Intelligence Institute, a world-leading machine intelligence research and development group located at the University of Alberta.
Dr. Noah Smith (University of Washington) presents new methods for linguistic structure prediction as continuous generalizations of state machines and probabilistic grammars. He shows how they've led to fast and accurate performance on several syntactic and semantic parsing problems.
Fridays at noon, Amii and the Department of Computing Science host AI Seminars, engaging presentations on topics in the broad field of artificial intelligence. With speakers from the University of Alberta and other world-leading groups, the talks give AI enthusiasts a friendly way of engaging with the latest trends and topics in research and development.
