AI Seminar Series


The Institute for Data Engineering and Science (IDEaS) is pleased to announce the launch of IDEaS-AI seminar series to support campus efforts to engage with the fast-developing field of Artificial Intelligence (AI). The seminar series will bring top AI researchers from around the country and the world, and will be open to all students, faculty, and staff. To kick off the series, we have invited many leading scientists, including leaders of many of the recently announced NSF AI Institutes, and have requested them to share their research, vision and plans. 

The lecture series will occur on Fridays from 2:00 - 3:00 p.m.
