2019 AI Symposium
The 2019 symposium took place on Oct. 19, 2019. We look forward to seeing you at the 2020 symposium.
Videos from the event are now available.
Join us for a day of AI: research talks, posters, demos, and plenty of networking opportunities.
The symposium aims to bring together participants from both academia and industry who are interested in the foundations or real-life applications of artificial intelligence.
The symposium is free and open to the general public. Registration required.
Call for poster contributions
Note: Poster presenters are not allowed to promote their company or give out promotional materials. If you would like to do that, please contact the symposium organizers for an alternative modality for your presentation.
