Unlocking the Potential of Hybrid Intelligence: Key Takeaways from the Second Joint Research Seminar

By María Fernanda Romain, Newtral

After one week of intense workshops, lectures, and exchanges among doctoral candidates, the HYBRIDS network concluded successfully the Second Joint Research Seminar in Evora, Portugal. “It was very productive and very interesting being here altogether,” expressed Erik Bran Marino, a doctoral candidate from the network.

During these days, the students had the opportunity to learn about the principles of ML and symbolic strategies of knowledge formalization, as well as gain insights into hybrid systems and their applications in various domains. Training was also provided to improve the quality and interpretability of language models.



The recent HYBRIDS Seminar emerged as a beacon of insight, collaboration, and innovation. The event provided attendees with networking opportunities with peers and experts in the field, and to get access to cutting-edge research and methodologies in Hybrid Intelligence, combining theoretical principles and practical applications.

“We started with presentations by the doctoral candidates, and getting feedback from the network, and then we had a lot of interesting talks and workshops on large language models, and hyperpartisan detection,”, Rrubaa Panchendrarajan, doctoral candidate at the Queen Mary University of London, said.

Armed with newfound knowledge, insights, and connections, attendees depart with a renewed sense of purpose and a commitment to driving innovation in this rapidly evolving field.
