You are invited to attend a presentation by Professor Tommie Meyer (University of Cape Town, South Africa) as part of the monthly seminar organized by the EID team at LIASD, Université Paris 8. The seminar will be held at IUT Montreuil (Salle Visio)*, at 2:00 pm (Paris time).

The title of the talk is: Knowledge Representation and Reasoning: In the Age of Machine Learning.
Abstract: In this talk I’ll remind the audience that Machine Learning is one of a number of sub-disciplines of Artificial Intelligence (AI), and that it is important for the field as a whole to maintain and grow expertise in all aspects of AI. I will then proceed to practice what I preach by introducing Knowledge Representation and Reasoning as one of the pillars of AI. I’ll conclude with some suggestions on how Knowledge Representation and Reasoning can benefit from research in Machine Learning, and vice versa.
