I think the most interesting part according to me; the most interesting part is how to combine symbolic AI let’s say with differentiable AI. This is essentially useful because there are some aspects which I’m trying to model within my research, let’s say for example trying to provide recommended system which is a better impact, let’s say trying to provide novel stuff to people, you know, or diverse stuff. Let’s try for example to say, on Spotify, I want to try new things, or Netflix, I want to get a suggestion about a movie that I wasn’t even aware of, that its totally surprising to me and that I more likely I will like. This essentially means in my opinion trying to inject kind of constraints, kind of new ways of providing this recommendation and trying to avoid to be repetitive or trivial in a sense. It seems to me that this has to mostly to do with the intelligence with a way of trying to encode the ground knowledge about what you can do and what you would like to express and also trying to inject is a machine learning system with machine learning algorithms. This is basically my personal view of how humans or AI can contribute into development of a field. Basically, the essential idea that you can in a sense encode the feelings the emotions, whatever you can model about human, human being and try to directly model it within the machine learning algorithms, within the Artificial Intelligence, with what Artificial Intelligence can deliver back to humans. In a sense it is a two way interaction, you would like to get the most that you can and on the same time you can deliver results that can be very, very well exploitable for people.
What would be your blue sky project in AI for Europe?
Well it is very well related once again, I would like to have the possibility (03:09, 03:10) that are able to answer or enhance user experience. I am fortunate enough to live in a world where we are all connected people, we use mobile phones, we could do things that we could not do ten years ago, let’s say for example, I come to Paris and I have a mobile phone and I can find the spot where the workshop is, or I can move the station to the airport, or whatever, to the hotel. This is essentially enhancing user experience. I would be very nice if we could proceed farther. And let’s say deliver people with stuff people don’t even know they need it. This is my blue sky project.
