Visiting Helsinki

December 21, 2018

Visited my old workplace, University of Helsinki, where I visited various faculty like Prof. Petri Myllymaki, Teemu Roos, Arto Klami and others. Across the bay is Aalto University with folks like Prof. Sami Kaski.   The machine learning groups in broader Helsinki are very strong, with loads of researchers, quality students, and a very vigorous start-up and high-tech culture.

Gave a talk at Machine Learning Coffee Seminar on 17/12 (which serves porridge as well as coffee), and attended the AI Day on 12/12. The AI Day is organised by the recently convened Finnish Centre for Artifical Intelligence, and the speakers were senior researchers from Finland describing their broader vision and direction, so really interesting stuff and very educational. Lots of creativity in there, for instance combining simulation, machine learning, HCI and cognitive psychology.
