Exploring human and machine intelligence – Conversations between Mihaela van der Schaar and Andrew Rashbass
Mihaela van der Schaar is the John Humphrey Plummer Professor of Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and Medicine at the University of Cambridge, a Fellow at The Alan Turing Institute, and founder and director of the Cambridge Centre for AI in Medicine (CCAIM).
Andrew Rashbass is the former CEO of The Economist Group, Reuters and Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC.
Aim: This series of conversations between Mihaela and Andrew explores how humans and machines can partner in ways that empower and help people. The discussions are informal and explore a particular topic in some depth. The topics explored will be wide-ranging – from much-discussed machine-learning topics such as reinforcement and inverse reinforcement learning, causality, meta-learning and transferlearning, and discovery from data to less-known subjects such as quantitative epistemology, reasoning in a complex and messy world, and which human-machine partnerships are advantageous and why.
