Vincent Fortuin organizes international seminar on generative AI
From February 12 to 17, Branco Weiss Fellow Vincent Fortuin has been organizing a Dagstuhl seminar about generative AI, titled “Challenges and Perspectives in Deep Generative Modeling”. Apart from generative models for text, speech, images, and video, the seminar program included discussion topics as generative modeling of scientific data, neural data compression, and anomaly and distribution shift detection. The aim of the event was to identify commonly occurring problems and general-purpose solutions by bringing together researchers working on both applied and theoretical aspects of generative modeling across application domains. In the wake of recent advances in generative AI, such as ChatGPT and Stable Diffusion, the seminar was a timely opportunity for the participating experts to chart an agenda for the future of this research field.
Schloss Dagstuhl, the Leibniz Center for Informatics, is recognized worldwide for its scientific meetings. At Dagstuhl Seminars, the most renowned scientists in computer science along with promising young researchers discuss scientific developments and exchange their ideas. Participation in a seminar is by invitation from Schloss Dagstuhl. Since its start in 1990 Schloss Dagstuhl has welcomed more than 50,000 participants in Dagstuhl Seminars and Dagstuhl Perspectives Workshops, the majority from the international scientific community. Among them there have been more than 25 Turing Award winners.
