Official launch of the AUAS Expertise Centre Applied AI
ECAAI encompasses all of the AUAS’s AI research and education activities. The centre drives the development of applications of AI technology in a responsible and inclusive manner. AI technology and its implications for companies, organisations, governments and people can only be understood in context and through experimentation. Each faculty of the AUAS have created a lab that brings research, education and practices together to solve short and medium term challenges with the application of AI.
You’re invited to join the official launch on Thursday 5th November 2020. ECAAI’s scientific director Nanda Piersma will speak about the latest developments, there will be a keynote from Jann de Waal (founder of INFO & Chair Topteam Creative Industries) and ECAAIs advisory council will participate in a panel discussion.
You can sign up via their event page to attend.
*The event will be held in Dutch.
