Lecture summary:

This lecture will take a mental tour to explore the areas of Productive AI and Large Language Models. These technologies are transforming our interaction with machines and will have applications in many industrial sectors.

In particular, the lecture will focus on Large Language Models such as ChatGPT, which are built on architectures that can understand and produce human-like text, making them highly flexible for various tasks.

In the lecture we will discover why these technologies are revolutionary and dissect the revolutionary impact of these models, examining both their enormous potential for task automation and the social challenges that accompany them.

A few words about the speaker:

Prof. Sotiris Hatzis is Associate Professor at the Cyprus University of Technology. He is Director of the Cyprus Statistical Machine Learning Laboratory (SML) and Chairman of the Department of Electrical, Computer and Information Engineering at CUT. Hatzis holds a degree in Computer Engineering and a PhD in Productive Models of Machine Learning Statistics. He worked at Imperial College London as a Senior Research Associate for four years before joining the staff of the Cyprus University of Technology. His research interests lie in the design of Deep Networks of Derivative Models with Bayesian variational inference. Typical areas of application include natural language understanding and generation, image and video understanding and generation, and the development of unbiased, paratopic-resistant and interpretable Deep Networks. Since 2016, he has served every consecutive year on the program committee of the most important international machine learning conferences, namely ICML, NeurIPS and ICLR. He has also been a coordinator of several research projects funded by the European Commission and the Cyprus Research & Innovation Foundation (RIF). He currently has 7 full-time PhD students working on the above mentioned topics, and has graduated 7 others. Dr. Hatzis has published more than 100 papers, mainly in the most competitive and high level conferences such as ICML, NeurIPS and also ICCV. More than 90% of these papers were published after the completion of his PhD studies. He has given several invited presentations of his research, including a recent one at the MIT Media Lab. He is included in the top 2% of AI experts according to Stanford University’s well-known rankings. Notably, he has been placed on this list continuously and every year since the introduction of this international ranking.
