In May 2012, the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina and the Korean Academy of Science and Technology (KAST) signed a Memorandum of Understanding, thus highlighting their strategic partnership. Within the framework of this cooperation agreement, high-profile joint symposia on topics of global relevance are organized on a regular basis.

This year, the Leopoldina-KAST Joint Conference will be held in Seoul and will be dedicated to Modern Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence:

Modern Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence have become an indispensible enabling technology for the sciences and industry. The joint symposium between KAST and Leopoldina aims to engage in a discourse on novel scientific developments and limits of this exciting interdisciplinary field at the intersection of mathematics, technology and cognition. Focus will be given to discuss Modern Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence technology itself and its application in the sciences such as the Neurosciences, Physics, Biology and Medicine.
Focus Areas of the conference will be the frontiers of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, including Deep Learning for Perception, Cognition and Modelling, Prospective of Hybrid Intelligence, as well as Applications to Science, Service and Industry.

Renowned scientists from Germany and South Korea will address current trends in these fields of research and discuss possible options for future scientific cooperation.
