Reykjavík University Holds Artificial Intelligence Festival

Reykjavík University (RU) opens the 2007 Artificial Intelligence (AI) Festival in Reykjavík Theater today at 1 pm. Icelandic experts in AI will present their projects and research in this field, including AI world champion Dr. Yngvi Björnsson.

Dr. Ari K. Jónsson, who used to work as a scientist at NASA, will also give a presentation at tomorrow’s festival, as well as Grímur Jónsson from Össur, who will talk about AI in artificial limbs, and a representative from Marel, who discusses AI in food processing.

In addition to the presentations, visitors can take a look at the latest AI technology on display in exhibition booths and enjoy musical performances. The winner of an RU AI competition will also be awarded at the festival. Admission is free.

According to an RU press release, AI is experiencing rapid growth and is being developed at several companies and institutions in Iceland, which have received international recognition for their work, like RU by winning the international General Game-Playing (GGP) Competition this summer.
