MLCS: Jussi Rintanen "Deploying A.I."

Machine Learning Coffee seminars are weekly seminars held jointly by the Aalto University and the University of Helsinki. The seminars aim to gather people from different fields of science with interest in machine learning. Seminars will be held weekly on Mondays at 9:00-10:00.

Deploying A.I.

Jussi Rintanen
Professor of Computer Science, Aalto University


Expectations for AI changing the world are great, and academic research groups have ambitious goals for deploying their research in the real world.

In this talk I discuss the potential of AI in a range of industries and application areas. What are the main opportunities for AI, the main obstacles for deployment of AI in a large scale, and what are the realistic routes for deployment?

My viewpoint is that of a researcher in planning and decision-making, with long-term experience in trying to apply AI to real-world industrial problems, including telecoms, energy, and software production.

I will argue that the core obstacle to AI having very broad impact on the society is the integration of AI technologies in existing software infrastructure. This obstacle also points to many promising research opportunities


Jussi Rintanen has done A.I. research in the junction of automated reasoning, search, and planning and decision-making at the universities of Ulm and Freiburg in Germany (1999 to 2005), the Australian National University (2006-2011), with applicative AI projects at National ICT Australia (2006-2011) and since 2012 at Aalto University. He leads the A.I. and Software Systems research group at Aalto.
