Recently eight students had the chance to welcome Mr Koray Kavukcuoglu, Vice President of Google DeepMind, from the school’s parent network as part of the Working Lunches initiative. Weija and Julia, both VII, tell us more:
Mr Kavukcuoglu gave us an accessible, yet informative insight into the exciting world of AI, as well as all its possible applications in everything from Atari-playing to protein-folding. He answered our questions with expertise, and we ended the lunch on a high note with some amazing advice regarding future careers in AI research. It was overall a highly motivating and educational experience, which pushed the boundaries of our knowledge and reminded us of the importance of keeping up to date with all the latest developments in science.
