Artificial Intelligence & Data Analytics (AI&DA) seminars

AI&DA research seminars discuss research of interest to the Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics group including, but not limited to, knowledge representation and reasoning, text mining, data privacy, data analytics, and machine learning.

These seminars will take place on Mondays between 13:00-14:00 online. Invites are sent out every week via email. To be added to the mailing list, please send an email to the seminar organisers.
