Their temperature displaying tapestries convey the consequences of global warming more effectively than any statistics. Because seeing is believing. At Bosch, we use the power of visuals in order to create safer and more robust Artificial Intelligence. Dr. Liu Ren, VP and Chief Scientist and his team at Bosch Research in Silicon Valley, are exploring a method called Visual Analytics to find a human-friendly form of representing big data associated with black-box AI systems.

Other things we discuss include: How “a brain made a fake brain to understand how a brain works”, the Dalai Lama wearing a cowboy hat (=neuroscientist Michelle Greene will explain the context), and Melena trying desperately to open a little farewell box from Geoff...
