Events Conference 2019 Conference

At the recent BayesiaLab conference, Emmanuel Keita presented the "big picture" of Artificial Intelligence, covering the entire spectrum from cognitive science to Bayesian networks. Here is a recording of his presentation.

At the heart of the of companies' information systems, close to decision-makers and operational staff, my professional experiences had led me to the observation that Business Intelligence (BI) did not provide a satisfactory answer to their real problems. What had changed in 20 years? Rainbow colors in the screens, OLAP cubes democratization, calculation speed… exciting — and also nightmare — for those in the IT department. But what is the real added value for the decision-makers and the workers? Curious about the potential of AI, I had just been trained in Python but, as a statistician, I saw nothing intellectually satisfying in my discovery of machine learning. Then a guy talked to me about "Bayesian networks."

That will be the starting point for this talk. An escapade into "augmented intelligence": Bayesian networks and BayesiaLab, encounters, change of relationship to the data, to beliefs, to the world and to myself… But, who am I, really ?
