Leila Amgoud

Leila Amgoud is a senior researcher at the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), a member of the IRIT Lab in Toulouse, and a deputy director of the same lab. Before, she worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Liverpool, United Kingdom. She holds a M.Sc. (1996), a PhD (1999) and an Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches (2009) in Computer Science from the Paul Sabatier University, Toulouse, France. She is currently an Associate Editor of the Artificial Intelligence Journal and the Journal of Argument and Computation, and she serves as area chair and senior program committee member of the main conferences on Artificial Intelligence. She has been honoured with a prestigious EurAI (previously called ECCAI) fellowship since 2014. The research interests of Leila are centered around knowledge representation and reasoning. She is specifically interested in argumentation-based approaches for reasoning and decision making under uncertainty. She holds a chair on "argumentation" at Artificial and Natural Intelligence Toulouse Institute.

Title: Argumentation Theory - Foundations and Applications
Abstract: Argumentation is a reasoning approach based on the justification of claims by arguments, i.e. reasons for accepting claims. Due to its explanatory power, it has been used for solving various AI problems including inconsistency handling and decision making. Whatever the problem to be solved, an argumentation process follows generally four main steps: it justifies claims by arguments, identifies (attack, support) relations between arguments, evaluates the arguments, and defines an output. Evaluation of arguments is crucial as it impacts the outcomes of argument-based systems. In this talk, I will introduce abstract argumentation frameworks, their formal foundations, various evaluation methods, and an example of a paraconsistent logic based on argumentation.

Eyke Hüllermeier

Eyke Hüllermeier is a full professor at the Institute of Informatics at LMU Munich, Germany, where he holds the chair of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. He studied mathematics and business computing, received his PhD in Computer Science from Paderborn University in 1997, and a Habilitation degree in 2002. Before joining LMU, he held professorships at several other German universities (Dortmund, Magdeburg, Marburg, Paderborn) and spent two years as a Marie Curie fellow at the IRIT in Toulouse (France). His research interests are centered around methods and theoretical foundations of artificial intelligence, with a particular focus on machine learning, preference modeling, and reasoning under uncertainty. He has published more than 400 articles on related topics in top-tier journals and major international conferences, and several of his contributions have been recognized with scientific awards. Professor Hüllermeier is Editor-in-Chief of Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery, a leading journal in the field of AI, and serves on the editorial boards of several other AI and machine learning journals. He is currently President of EuADS, the European Association for Data Science, a member of the Strategy Board of the Munich Center for Machine Learning (MCML), and a member of the Steering Committee of the Konrad Zuse School of Excellence in Reliable AI (relAI).

Title: Uncertainty Quantification in Machine Learning - From Aleatoric to Epistemic
Abstract: Due to the steadily increasing relevance of machine learning for practical applications, many of which are coming with safety requirements, the notion of uncertainty has received increasing attention in machine learning research in the recent past. This talk will address questions regarding the representation and adequate handling of (predictive) uncertainty in (supervised) machine learning. A particular focus will be put on the distinction between two important types of uncertainty, often referred to as aleatoric and epistemic, and how to quantify these uncertainties in terms of appropriate numerical measures. Roughly speaking, while aleatoric uncertainty is due to the randomness inherent in the data generating process, epistemic uncertainty is caused by the learner's ignorance of the true underlying model.ƒ
