CAIML Opening: Success!
COVID-19 didn’t make it easy, but we nevertheless had a massively successful opening event for our new Center for Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.
The newly founded Center for Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (CAIML) aims to bundle and strengthen research activities in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning both in their foundations and applications and to establish TU Wien as a center of excellence for Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. The center consists of three thematic pillars: (1) methods of symbolic AI, (2) methods of machine learning, and (3) explainable AI and AI aspects in the context of digital humanism. The CAIML board comprises twelve internationally renowned researchers in the faculties of Informatics and Mathematics and Geoinformation of TU Wien.
Despite severe COVID-related constraints during the nationwide lockdown, the opening event for our new Center for Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (CAIML) took place with a handful of (vaccinated and tested) people on location, a remote keynote, a hybrid panel, and more than 300 attendees from all over the world in Zoom and YouTube.
Thanks again to everybody who made CAIML possible and everybody who participated in the opening event! Enjoy the photos, and follow the links below.
