Artificial intelligence is poised to change the way research is conducted in the coming years. Not only will AI/ML influence research, it will affect the very fabric of everyday life. For example, Stanford’s One Hundred Year Study on Artificial Intelligence, says that the following major areas will be transformed via AI by 2030: 1) transportation, 2) home/service robots, 3) healthcare, 4) education, 5) low-resource communities, 6) public safety and security, 7) employment and workplace, and 8) entertainment. The speed networking event will help you explore possibilities for the application of AI/ML in addressing many of the coming societal changes due to AI.
You are invited to participate in a speed networking event to meet others interested in utilizing AI/ML on Friday, October 18 from 2pm-4:30pm in 104 IATL. The afternoon’s agenda follows:
- 2:00pm-2:15pm: Introduction
- 2:15pm-4:00pm: Speed Networking
- 4:00pm-4:30pm: Mix and Mingle (appetizers and refreshments provided)
Researchers from all disciplines interested in utilizing AI/ML to advance research
The AI/ML Speed Networking event aims to achieve the following:
- Brainstorm potential multidisciplinary research collaborations
- Identify potential research partnerships
- Identify potential funding sources for AI/ML research
Please click here to complete the registration survey. Registration deadline for this event is Friday, October 11.
Note: Due to the highly structured nature of speed networking, it is required that participants remain for the entire duration of the speed networking portion of the event. Also, please note that registration will be capped at 15 (AI/ML researchers) and 15 (non-AI/ML researchers) and the event will start promptly at 2:00pm.
