AI Open House

Wednesday, November 20
3 - 5 p.m.

Ford Design Center, Hive (Room 2-350)

The primary goals of the AI Open House are to inform University faculty about research in artificial intelligence and machine learning in the Computer Science Department, and to create a dialogue with researchers across campus interested in this space. In hopes of creating a lasting ecosystems of AI connections that will generate future planning proposals, this event will bring together researchers who are interested in AI, machine learning, and robotics and their applications across diverse disciplines.
