Wherever we look in nature, we always find some sort of intelligence. Think of the way ants optimize their route from the nest to food source, how large groups of birds fly together without ever colliding with no communication, how evolution shapes animals to adapt to their environment, and so much more. Gert De Geyter explains in a powerful talk how we should learn from nature’s intelligence, which has been fine-tuned to perfection over millions of years, and how we can use this data to better understand nature, and the universe.
In his inspirational talk, Gert uses many concrete examples to explain artificial intelligence and how it may help to solve many of the questions we are still facing today, ranging from understanding the galaxy to finding ways to solve our traffic jam problems.
Gert De Geyter is a data-analytics consultant, a co-organiser of Data Science Ghent, and an invited lecturer on data analytics at Toulouse School of Economics. Gert holds a PhD in Astronomy, where he focused on creating an artificial intelligent program to recreate 3D models of galaxies from 2D observed images.
