The First Artificial Intelligence Innovation Technology Workshop “Multi-modal Cognitive Computing and Brain-Computer Intelligence” Was Successfully Held
From August 21st to August 22nd, sponsored by the China Association for Artificial Intelligence (CAAI) and the Future Science and Technology City Management Committee of Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, and undertaken by Fellows' House of China Association for Artificial Intelligence (Hangzhou Station), the first artificial intelligence innovation technology workshop “Multi-modal Cognitive Computing and Brain-Computer Intelligence” was successfully held online with more than 540,000 online viewers.
Geared towards multi-modal information processing, Focusing on the latest frontiers of artificial intelligence and brain science
This workshop is geared towards multi-modal information processing, focusing on the latest frontiers in artificial intelligence and brain science. Researchers Duan Nan, Associate Professor Huang Minlie, Professor Ji Rongrong, Academician Tao Dacheng, Professor Wu Fei, Associate Professor Wu Qi, Professor Wu Xia, Professor Zeng Zhigang and other 8 scholars with important influence at home and abroad were invited to bring a rich academic feast.
Professor Deng Cheng from Xidian University made the opening speech. Professor Deng pointed out that more than 90% of the current massive data comes from multi-modal data obtained from vision, hearing, touch, etc. The basic function of the human brain is to process these multi-modal data to perceive the external world. Research on the computational theory of multi-modal information processing is of great significance to the fields of brain science, brain-like computing, and brain-computer intelligence. It is also a research field that my country's next-generation artificial intelligence and the "Brain Project" focus on.
