Zoubin Ghahramani appointed Deputy Director of the new Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence

The University of Cambridge has announced a new research centre thanks to a £10 million grant from the Leverhulme Trust. Zoubin Ghahramani has been appointed as Deputy Director. According to Zoubin:

“The field of machine learning continues to advance at a tremendous pace, and machines can now achieve near-human abilities at many cognitive tasks—from recognising images to translating between languages and driving cars. We need to understand where this is all leading, and ensure that research in machine intelligence continues to benefit humanity. The Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence will bring together researchers from a number of disciplines, from philosophers to social scientists, cognitive scientists and computer scientists, to help guide the future of this technology and study its implications.”
