AI Workshop at womENcourage Pre-Event

About the Workshop

The workshop will bring together researchers interested in Artificial Intelligence. It is co-located with the womENcourage satellite pre-event organised by the Better Balance in Informatics (BBI) and IDUN projects promoting Women in Computer Science.

The workshop aims to be a place to discuss various aspects of AI research and it's applications. We encourage participants to share their experience and discuss challenges they are facing. We will have two talks by experienced researchers that will share current work and pose some questions that should spark discussions among the participants.

We will leave room for discussions during the workshop. Depending on the number of participants we might split the participants in groups.
