Distinguished Lectures and interACT Seminars

interACT aims at sharing it’s scientific know-how between the partners. Therefore a distinguished lecture series is organized in order to make the competence available to a broader audience. Since the official founding of interACT in 2004 about 25 lectures were given, among them Tom Mitchell, CMU (@ KIT in 2005: Machine Learning and Brain Imaging).
