La Universidad Hebrea y Meta AI lanzan un programa conjunto de Inteligencia Artificial

The Escuela Rachel y Selim Benin de Informática e Ingeniería de la Universidad Hebrea de Jerusalen (HU) and the company of technology transfer of the university, Yissum, have announced a new research association with Meta AI.

La Universidad Hebrea se une a Meta AI para reinforcer los vínculas entre el mundo académica y la industria tecnologia. With its headquarters in Menlo Park (California), Meta AI later opened small satellite research laboratories in Seattle, Pittsburgh, Tel Aviv, Montreal and London, and more recently a laboratory in Manhattan.

The company investigates to advance the artificial intelligence of vanguardia mediate la investigationa fundamental y aplicada en collaboración abierta con la comunidad. The doctoral students who are accepted in the program of the Hebrew University will have the opportunity to fuse theory with real labor experience, understand emerging technologies and develop other new technologies.

The results of the investigation carried out in the framework of this strategic association will be published for the benefit of the scientific community and the industry. Meta assignará to los estudiantes de la Universidad Hebrea mentores y cacas para que profundicen en su conocimiento de la IA y el aprendizaje automáticoand the students will have access to the computational infrastructure and the Meta installations.

Meta AI pertenece a Meta Platforms Inc. (ante conocida como Facebook, Inc.). It started as Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research (FAIR), which was officially announced in 2013. The research in FAIR was a pioneer in technology that led to facial recognition, photo tagging and personalized feed recommendations.

Its latest advances in AI include the BuilderBot, which allows users to generate virtual worlds via voice commands. Otras herramientas son No Language Left Behind, un sistema capaz de traducir automaticamente entre lenguas escritas, y Universal Speech Translator, un sistema capaz de traducir instantanamente de voz a voz.

Professor Sara Cohen, dean of the School of Benin in the Department of Science and Informatics Engineering at HU, commented: “This association offers our students a unique opportunity to experience the world of research and development from two perspectives: a perspective of investigation that allows experimentation, innovation and advances, and a perspective of application“.

“They will allow you to understand the impact of your investigation in the real world. This unique collaboration in its genre will allow doctoral students from the Hebrew University to study at one of the main universities in Israel and put their ideas to the test in the IA laboratory of Meta, a leader in the sector.”

El director general de Yissum, el Dr. Itzik Goldwaser said that “the election of Meta to collaborate with the Hebrew University is a test of the scientific excellence of our institution and of the commercial success that Yissum has achieved for its principal professors. “Los curiosos e innovatores investigação de la universidad desempénan un papel fundamental en el mercado, y estamos orgolosos de facilitar esta collaboración con Meta para que repercuta en la comunidad científica”.

Investigación exploratoria, la ciencia abierta y la collaboración cruzada son fundamentales para nuestros efforts en el campo de la IA”, said Professor Joelle Pineau, Director General of FAIR. “Many of our projects are realized with researchers both in the industry and in the academic world, because we believe that this is the fastest way to advance research. Llevar nuestro programa de doctorado a Israel, en collaboración con la Universidad Hebrea, aumentará nuestro impacto colectivo, ya que juntos aceleramos el progresso del mundo hacia una IA más capaz”.
