ISY Day 2024 – AI in Society, Education, and Research

This year’s edition of ISY Day offered lectures, discussions, and demonstrations within this year's theme "AI in Society, Education, and Research". A theme that is both current and highly relevant at the Department of Electrical Engineering.

Synthetic images can save a lot of time in healthcare

AI makes it possible to quickly and accurately mark areas to be eliminated with radiation when treating cancerous tumors. But due to lack of medical data to train AI models with, attempts are underway to train models with synthetic medical images.

Info graphics with illustrations showing how local updates are being sent from the hospitals to a cloud. The cloud sends a new global modell to the hospitals. The trained model gives personal healthcare.

Developing medical AI without sharing sensitive information

Sharing sensitive data, such as images of brain tumor patients, is complicated. This makes development of AI models for medical image analysis challenging. LiU researchers shows how such models can be trained without sharing sensitive information.

WASP extended with a new initiative: AI for Science

Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation grants SEK 70 million to WASP for a new initiative that promotes the uptake of AI based methodologies in academic research in Sweden.

Lectures about AI

Cyber security and critical systems reliability

Our financial systems, electrical systems and transport systems are controlled by software. There are many examples of what the consequences could be if these systems are hacked. Researcher Mikael Asplund talks about cyber security and how artificial intelligence can be used to make systems more secure. From ForskarFredag (European Researchers' Night) 29 September 2023; Forskarhörnan.

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.
