Focus Research Seminar "AI: From Tutorials to Hands-On"

With its many concretizations in self-driving cars, instant machine translation and recommendation sys- tems, to cite a few, it is difficult to ignore the importance of AI in our everyday life. The Focus Research Center (member of the NADI research institute) has the pleasure to invite you to two talks on the subject. They will include both theoretical talks and hands-on sessions for practicing with tools.

The IDP Knowledge Base System

10h–12h: Prof. Joost Vennekens (KULeuven, Belgium)

Many of the operational decisions that are made in a typical company require a great deal of expert knowledge: there are regulations, laws, best practices, company policies, etc. to take into account. The IDP Knowledge Base System aims at allowing such expert knowledge to be represented in a purely declaratively way, such that it can be flexibly used to support different tasks. This system has been used to build decision support systems to help a notary determine registration duties and to assist a product engineer in designing a specific kind machine component. In this tutorial, we provide some hands-on experience with using this publicly available system.  

The quest towards Coordination from Distributed to Socio-technical systems

14h–17h: Prof. Stefano Mariani (Unimore University, Italy)

The increasing complexity of modern IT systems calls for principled approaches to govern interactions between their distributed components—namely, calls for coordination models. In this seminar, we will travel across the landscape of coordination models, languages, and technologies, to witness their evolution and application to heterogeneous domains ranging from distributed computing to socio-technical systems. As a complement to this conceptual overview, a hands-on session will jump-start attendants with selected technologies enabling to put in practice what they learnt.


The seminar is free but requires a registration. More information is available on the webpage
