Last week, our head-PI Lena Kästner visited the Swiss AI Lab IDSIA USI/SUPSI (Istituto Dalle Molle di Studi sull’Intelligenza Artificiale), a joint institute of both the Faculty of Informatics of the Università della Svizzera Italiana and the Department of Innovative Technologies of SUPSI, the University of Applied Sciences of Southern Switzerland.

There were a number of joint events throughout the week during which Lena Kästner (Bayreuth; middle), Alessandro Facchini (IDSIA, Lugano; right), and Alberto Termine (LUCI, Milan; left), together with a number of researchers and students from IDSIA and Milan, discussed about the relationships between artificial intelligence, machine learning, and experimental research in the life of sciences. 

On Wednesday, Lena Kästner gave a talk on “Modeling Mental Illnesses: Multiplexes to Rescue?” highlighting how machine learning informs model building in psychiatry.
