EU Scientists Propose CERN-style Initiative to Build a European Lab for Learning & Intelligent Systems

From their letter: "We propose to found a European Lab for Learning & Intelligent Systems (working title; abbreviated as “ELLIS”), involving the very best European academics while working together closely with basic researchers from industry.
The mission of ELLIS is to benefit Europe in two ways:
- we want the best basic research to be performed in Europe, to enable Europe to shape how machine learning and modern AI change the world, and
- we want to have economic impact and create jobs in Europe, and believe this is achieved by outstanding and free basic research, independent of industry interests.

LT-Innovate's insight:

The "CERN" reference is hype of course, as the CERN never had to make an economic impact on industry and jobs, the hardest part of this AI plan.

Stanford Report Measuring AI Achievements in 2017

Stanford Report Measuring AI Achievements in 2017 | Language Tech Market News | Scoop.it
2017 Report
This report aggregates a diverse set of data, makes that data accessible, and includes discussion about what is provided and what is missing. Most importantly, the AI Index 2017 Report is a starting point for the conversation about rigorously measuring activity and progress in AI in the future.
LT-Innovate's insight:

Moderately useful set of graphs on progress in everything from numbers of publications to ASR quality levels. Would be good if someone collected all language technology (NLP, NLU, ASR, MT) progress trends in one place to rigorously measure activity..
