Artificial Intelligence and Artificial Ignorance

DATE:Tuesday, May 28, 2024
TIME:16:00 – 17:30
VENUE:Café Museum, Operngasse 7, Extrazimmer, 1010 Wien


The conversation with Georg Gottlob will explore Artificial Intelligence's current state and challenges. It will also provide insights into the two main branches of AI research, symbolic AI and sub-symbolic AI, highlighting their achievements and limitations. The conversation will also delve into the recent advancements in generative AI, such as ChatGPT, and examine instances where these models excel and where they fall short.  

Are you interested in Logic, Philosophy, Mathematics, Informatics, and Artificial Intelligence? Then join our public discussion “LogicLounge”, which will be held in Vienna on Tuesday, May 28, 2024 at Café Museum. It’s free! No registration or expertise required. This year, we will be welcoming Georg Gottlob, a popular Austrian computer scientist. The discussion and subsequent Q&A will again be moderated by journalist Sarah Kriesche.

Georg Gottlob is a Professor of Informatics at Oxford University and a Fellow of St John’s College. He worked as a Professor in Computer Science at TU Wien, Austria, since 1988, and still holds an Adjunct Professor position in Vienna. From 2006 to 2011, Gottlob held the Chair of Computing Science at Oxford University, and then moved to the Chair of Informatics at Oxford, which he has been holding since January 2012. His current research deals with algorithms and complexity issues related to graphs and hypergraphs, database query languages, and with problem decomposition methods that can be used for recognizing large classes of tractable instances of hard problems.

About LogicLounge

The series of public lectures LogicLounge continues to bring together the general public and the experts from the fields of logic, philosophy, mathematics, computer science, and artificial intelligence. Since its inception at the Vienna Summer of Logic in 2014 – the largest event in the history of logic – the series has since been traveling between Vienna and the venue of the CAV (International Conference on Computer-Aided Verification), where it has already become a regular event in honor of Helmut Veith (1971-2016).
