ADS Event

We all face daily challenges in human-computer interaction. But what are the possible solutions to these challenges? And how can we implement these solutions?

Join Amsterdam Data Science, VU Amsterdam, HvA and CWI for this meetup as we explore the research being carried out in this field. Talks will include how to enable ethical and performant AI systems, and how to facilitate and improve the way people access media and communicate with others and with the environment.
