Severe MS predicted using machine learning

A combination of only 11 proteins can predict long-term disability outcomes in multiple sclerosis (MS) for different individuals. The proteins could be used to tailor treatments to the individual based on the expected severity of the disease.

ChatGPT and other AI assistants: Possibilities and challenges

Technological developments in the area of language models and generative AI have been fast, leading to reactions. Many people are wondering which way developments are going and what consequences this will have for society. In a 15-minute talk, Professor Marco Kuhlmann covers the basics of how language models such as ChatGPT work, gives examples of their applications and highlights various technological, social and environmental challenges linked to AI assistants. From ForskarFredag (European Researchers' Night) 29 September 2023; Forskarhörnan.

AI in Society 
- Hannah Pelikan and Ericka Johnson

Can machines be intelligent? How does artificial intelligence (AI) shape our society and everyday life? How can the humanities and social sciences contribute to the discourse on artificial intelligence? Ericka Johnson, professor in Gender and Society, and Hannah Pelikan, Phd student in Language and Culture discuss questions raised in the seminar series AI in Society.

The lecture is part of the Strimman lecture series.

Artificial intelligence at LiU

Development has been rapid since LiU appointed Sweden’s first professor in computer science, Erik Sandewall, in 1975. He presented his doctoral thesis in 1969 in the new subject “artificial intelligence”. At the time, research was focussed on expert systems and knowledge transfer. The focus today has shifted to machine learning, deep learning and systems that include reasoning and decision-making processes – AI-enabled systems.

At LiU, world-leading research is conducted in several important fields of AI. Computer Vision – deep learning in which computers, with the aid of advanced image processing and AI, can draw their own conclusions – is one strong field, while another is knowledge systems and advanced decision support, which requires logical reasoning. A third field is research into the role of humans in the systems, together with how we can maintain the knowledge required to take over if the systems fail.

Linköping University’s AI plattform

LiU’s AI plattform involves a wide

range of work, from education and research to contact with industry and society. 

AI is about AI techniques

as well as applications of these techniques.

LiU is host for WASP

Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program.
