The AI that Understands (AITU) team is building the first AI for human-like understanding of complex documents, which aims to help people make well-informed decisions.
Our mission is to build artificial intelligence algorithms that understand complex objects such as documents. We aim to push the current limits of state-of-the-art research in knowledge representation and reasoning. Our artificial intelligence algorithms make the information in documents accessible, from user manuals to scientific papers.
AI and deep-learning systems are touching every aspect of our lives due to great successes in computer vision (self-driving cars), speech processing, natural language processing and many other applications.
Despite these successes, current AI systems still lack real, deep understanding. For instance, object recognition systems are easily fooled by objects in unusual orientations or environments. They make errors that humans avoid, because they only analyse statistical properties of pixels, sounds or characters, but have no actual understanding of the content.
