590 A - Research Seminar in Artificial Intelligence

Autumn Quarter 2007

Faculty organizer: Mausam

Day / Time: Fridays 3:30-4:20
Location: EEB 003


Theme: The Future of AI

The theme for CSE590A will be 'The Future of AI'. We will present talks from several seasoned researchers regarding their vision for AI. The hope is that the seminars will excite all of us regarding the role of AI in our future, intrigue and puzzle us by the burning open research questions and hopefully also provoke us in thinking about a broader, long-term vision for our own research. The format will be informal and interactive and we expect to have fun discussions after the talks.
