Charlemagne Distinguished Lecture Series: AICES Welcomes Prof. Dr. Yann LeCun


Twice a year, the AICES fellows organize the prestigious Charlemagne Lecture, whose objective is to invite persons, who have achieved impressive accomplishments throughout their career and, in this sense, to get inspired by their scientific achievements. 
As the 12th speaker, the AICES fellows invited Professor Dr. Yann LeCun, Director of AI Research at Facebook. Professor Dr. LeCun gave a talk on "Unsupervised Learning: the Next Frontier in AI" on November 28, 2016 at 3pm in the FordHall of Super C (6th floor). 
We were very pleased about his visit and we will be honoured to welcome Yann LeCun any time again.
