The Munich AI Lectures are a joint initiative of MCML, CAS, ELLIS Munich, and MDSI to showcase insights and ideas from experts in the field.
On a monthly basis, we invite top-level AI researchers to give us a glimpse into their work and the future of AI. Our lectures consist of a short presentation followed by a Q&A to enable a lively discussion with our speakers. Each lecture lasts about one hour and will be streamed live on YouTube. Recordings will be available afterwards.
We are very happy to welcome Prof. Michael Bronstein as our next speaker. Michael Bronstein is the DeepMind Professor of AI at the University of Oxford and Head of Graph Learning Research at Twitter. He was previously a professor at Imperial College London and held visiting appointments at Stanford, MIT, and Harvard, and has also been affiliated with three Institutes for Advanced Study (at TUM as a Rudolf Diesel Fellow (2017-2019), at Harvard as a Radcliffe fellow (2017-2018), and at Princeton as a short-time scholar (2020)). Michael received his PhD from the Technion in 2007. He is the recipient of the Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award, Royal Academy of Engineering Silver Medal, five ERC grants, two Google Faculty Research Awards, and two Amazon AWS ML Research Awards. He is a Member of the Academia Europaea, Fellow of IEEE, IAPR, BCS, and ELLIS, ACM Distinguished Speaker, and World Economic Forum Young Scientist.
