The series of seminars of the Athena Research Center (ARC), a Statutory Partner of the European Institute of Communication, continues with an extremely interesting speech by Professor Dr. Christos Papadimitriou.

 

Dr. Papadimitriou, Professor of Columbia University and member of the scientific council of ARC’s Artificial Intelligence Unit “Archimedes”, analyzes “How the brain creates Language”, in a speech in which Neuroscience meets Computer Science and Language Science.

 

The speech is part of the extroversion pursued by the Centre’s research ecosystem. Dr. Papadimitriou will have the opportunity to present Assembly Calculus, a new programming language for translating neural aggregation activity into concepts and words, as well as an English syntactic analyzer, which works exclusively by firing neurons and synapses.

 

Dr. Papadimitriou, MIT professor Dr. Konstantinos Daskalakis and professor of RMIT University of Australia Dr. Timos Sellis constitute the scientific core of the research structure “Archimedes”, which covers the three thematic – driving forces of the fourth industrial revolution which -in turn- is connected with the scientific interests of ECI. Artificial Intelligence, Data Science and Algorithms are inextricably linked to research, innovation and language applications, leading to applied technologies that improve the everyday life of the citizen. The Unit operates as a hub for the cooperation of distinguished Greek academics working abroad, while building collaborations with universities and researchers in Greece and abroad.

 

The speech takes place tomorrow, Wednesday, June 1st 2022, at 16:00, in the Zampolli Hall of the ARC building in Maroussi and online, via ZOOM. The ECI community is encouraged to watch it via Zoom (https://us06web.zoom.us/j/86888417830?pwd=VWE3WHYzcGxrWklBcDhTdWVSS25Ldz09) with the opportunity to ask questions and participate in the discussion that will follow.
