Challenge Update #18 - Results party, white papers and Round 2: AI Race Avoidance
Round 1 Gradual Learning: results party
We threw a party at our offices in Prague to celebrate the recent results of Round 1: Gradual Learning. We were joined by partners, judges, participants and of course our finalists!
The GoodAI team elaborated on the results and we heard from two of the external judges via video link, Tomas Mikolov (Research Scientist at Facebook AI Research) and Roman Yampolskiy (Professor at University of Louisville).
Finally, we heard from the four finalists, Andreas Ipp and Andrés del Campo Novales (video of speech below), who made it on the night, as well as Dan Barry and Susumu Katayama who joined via video link. Below you can also find short interviews with Andreas and Andrés.
