• What we'll do
It's a new year, but the best part of 2017 is back: Turku.ai! Our January gathering is hosted by the University of Turku and especially, the BioNLP research group. Join us on 17.1. at the University of Turku, Agora building, 4th floor. There will be drinks and food but even more importantly two excellent talks. This time our speakers are Dr. Simon Holmbacka and Prof. Jukka Heikkonen. Simon is an accomplished researcher originally from Åbo Akademi, currently working at Elisa on the topic of self organizing mobile networks. He is going to talk about "Machine learning based optimization in 4G networks".
The second speaker for the January meetup is Prof. Jukka Heikkonen. In his talk he is going to give an overview of autonomous ships research carried at the university of Turku in collaboration with Rolls-Royce and Kine Robot Solutions. He is leading Algorithms and Computational Intelligence research group focusing on machine learning and probabilistic and information theoretical modelling applied in wide varying application domains.
