Computing Science Centre - room 3-33

Andreas Holzinger is lead of the Human-Centered AI Lab (Holzinger Group) at the Medical University Graz and since 2016 he is Visiting Professor for machine learning in health informatics at Vienna University of Technology.

Andreas Holzinger promotes a synergistic approach to Human-Centred Artificial Intelligence (HC-AI) and has pioneered in interactive machine learning (iML) with the human-in-the-loop. Andreas’ goal is to augment human intelligence with artificial intelligence to help to solve problems in health informatics. 

Hosted by the Faculty of Science, this is your opportunity to hear from a leading researcher, and learn more about artificial intelligence applied to precision healthcare. 

Open to all UAlberta Faculty, Staff and Trainees

Like to Play in the Dirt?
Spring has sprung! That means it is time for picnics, festivals, and planting. The ECHA Terrace Garden Committee is gearing up and getting the garden boxes planted.  There will be an assortment of goodies at the North Terrace including carrots, chives, onions, peas tomatoes and more. They will also be planting flowers to help out the bees - hopefully, they will feel the need to help pollinate the veggies in return.

Everyone is welcome to help with the Terrace Gardens located on the 3rd floor of ECHA. No commitment is necessary, you can water for a day, pull weeds for a week, join us for the whole summer or simply help us eat! No green thumb necessary - the garden is open to all people, learning or experts alike. 

If you have any questions or would like to join email Erin at  echagarden@gmail.com
