The IET/BCS Manchester Turing Lecture 2010
The University of Manchester, in partnership with the IET and BCS, was delighted to announce Professor Christopher Bishop as 2010 6th. annual Turing Lecture speaker. Chris Bishop (Chief Research Scientist, Microsoft Research Cambridge ) delivered a captivating lecture titled Embracing Uncertainty: The new machine intelligence.
A webcast of Manchester Turing Lecture 2010 is available from here.
Computers are traditionally viewed as logical machines which follow precise, deterministic instructions.
The real world in which they operate, however, is full of complexity, ambiguity, and uncertainty. In this year’s Turing Lecture, Professor Chris Bishop discusses the field of machine learning, and shows how uncertainty can be modelled and quantified using probabilities.
He looks at the recent developments in probabilistic modelling which have greatly expanded the variety and scale of machine learning applications, and he explores the future potential for this technology.
