This transferable skills seminar is targeted for researchers (MC, DC, PD, faculty member).
Seminar will be conducted in English.

Big Data and AI have become popular buzzwords in recent years.More and more researchers reach for tools and methods brought by the technological advances of both fields but there are still many misconceptions on what currently can and cannot be achieved.In my talk I will present the latest trends by illustrating them with usage examples from different disciplines. I will also show cases where the expectations were not met and where both fields face ethical problems.
