Eye On A.I.

Eye on A.I. tracks new developments in artificial intelligence research, hosted by longtime New York Times journalist Craig S. Smith. In each episode, Craig will discuss aspects of AI with some of the people making a difference in the space, putting incremental advances into a broader context. AI is about to change your world, so pay attention.

In this episode of Eye on AI, I continue my review of AI research in different regions of the world with a focus on Europe. Europe, with its strong academic tradition, faces unique challenges in scientific research because of the continent's fragmentation and the weakening of the European Union. Given the growing dominance of North America and China, Europe risks being left behind. To understand what Europe is doing to avoid this, I talk to Bernhard Schölkopf and Matthias Bethge, two machine learning researchers from Tübingen, Germany, who have been working to bring machine learning research in Europe under one umbrella.  I hope you find Bernhard and Matthias as interesting as I did.
