February 11th: AI at the UvA 2020
Save the date!
The topic of AI research in the Netherlands is booming. The National AI Agenda has been published by the government, NWO just published the NWO AI Research Agenda, the City of Amsterdam announced a huge AI initiative, and here at the UvA we soon will announce the Second Human(e) Call For Seed Funding.
As last year, we want to kick off the next round of seed funding with a symposium & matchmaking event. This will be on 11 February in the afternoon at the Volkshotel. We are very pleased to announce a prominent keynote speaker: Catelijne Muller, President of the ALLAI – Alliance on Artificial Intelligence – and Member of the EU High Level Expert Group on AI (https://allai.nl).
We will also present you with an update on AI research here at the UvA, and there will be again ample opportunity to engage and brainstorm about new projects.
