EPIA 2019

,

he EPIA Conference on Artificial Intelligence is a well-established European conference in the field of AI. The 19th edition, EPIA 2019, will take place in Vila Real in September 3th-6th, 2019.

As in previous editions, this international conference is hosted with the patronage of the Portuguese Association for Artificial Intelligence (APPIA).

The purpose of this conference is to promote research in all areas of Artificial Intelligence (AI), covering both theoretical/foundational issues and applications, and the scientific exchange among researchers, engineers and practitioners in related disciplines.

EPIA 2019 will feature a set of thematic tracks (to be announced), covering a wide spectrum of AI topics.

 

We are looking forward to welcome you and provide an excellent stay in this beautiful region!

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE & BIG DATA LEADERSHIP FORUM 2019

,

IDC ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE & BIG DATA LEADERSHIP FORUM 2019

Artificial Intelligence, Big Data and Analytics in general is continuing to garner significant investment and attention from European organizations. IDC finds leading companies in this space are increasingly taking a data-driven approach to running their business, where data is exploited as an organizational asset and leveraged to help transform and automate business processes. Organizations also have more tool choice for managing and analyzing this data. Machine learning and its ability to adapt and learn from data provides the promise of organizations being able to develop and deliver intelligent data tools and applications.

Artificial Intelligence & Big Data Leadership Forum provides a holistic view of the complex and vibrant market for business use of intelligent systems by combining software product-related research with coverage of the broader market opportunities, user views, user implementations, tools for success, and a view of its ecosystem.

The premier global provider of market intelligence and advisory services, and the main Information Management School in Portugal are bringing to you an exclusive one-day event!

Geostatistical analysis of sardine eggs data — a Bayesian approach

,

Understanding the distribution of animals over space, as well as how that distribution is influenced by environmental covariates, is a fundamental requirement for the effective management of animal populations. This is especially the case for populations which are harvested. The sardine is one of the most important fisheries species, both for its economic, sociologic, antropologic and cultural values.

Here we intend to understand the spatial distribution of the average number of sardine eggs by m3. Our main objectives are to identify the environmental variables that better explain the spatial variation in sardine eggs density and to make predictions in spatial points that were not observed.

The data structure presents an excess of zeros and extreme values. To deal with this, we propose a point-referenced zero-inflated model to model the probability of presence together with the positive sardine eggs density and a point-referenced generalized Pareto model for the extremes. Finally, we combine the results of these two models to get the spatial predictions of the variable of interest. We follow a Bayesian approach and the inference is made using the package R-INLA in the software R.

Conferências sobre Inteligência Artificial

Técnico e Culturgest organizam ciclo de conferências sobre Inteligência Artificial

Entre abril e junho, o ciclo divide-se em três momentos, cada um com um programa duplo: um debate com vários oradores do meio académico e empresarial e uma grande conferência.

A Culturgest vai realizar um ciclo de conferências dedicado ao tema da Inteligência Artificial: Aplicações, Implicações e Especulações, uma parceria científica com o Instituto Superior Técnico da Universidade de Lisboa e que conta com os consultores científicos: Arlindo Oliveira (IST), Ana Paiva (IST) e Mário Figueiredo (IST).

A Inteligência Artificial impõe-se cada vez mais na realidade das sociedades contemporâneas. Novos desenvolvimentos tecnológicos nascem todos os dias mas raramente o seu impacto é devidamente refletido na esfera pública. Assumindo a importância de conhecer e discutir esta realidade, este ciclo de debates promove o olhar e a reflexão sobre as aplicações atuais da Inteligência Artificial, as suas implicações sociais nas mais variadas dimensões (da saúde à privacidade, à empregabilidade e outras) e a forma como se imagina o futuro neste novo paradigma.

Entre abril e junho, o ciclo divide-se em três momentos, cada um com um programa duplo: um debate com vários oradores do meio académico e empresarial e uma grande conferência.

O programa é o seguinte:

Programa em detalhe com sinopses e biografias de todos os participantes.

Entrada gratuita, sujeita à lotação e mediante levantamento de bilhete no próprio dia a partir das 15:00. Haverá live streaming de algumas sessões.
