Artificial Intelligence in Action

From voice-powered personal assistants like Siri and Alexa, to more underlying and fundamental technologies such as behavioral algorithms, suggestive searches and autonomously-powered self-driving vehicles boasting powerful predictive capabilities, artificial intelligence has only started to revolutionize our lives. A multitude of exciting possibilities in fields like computer vision, natural language processing, medicine, biology, industry, manufacturing, security, education, virtual environments, games and others, are yet to be explored.

The ‘Artificial Intelligence In Action’ session aims to bring together student researchers and practitioners to present their latest achievements and innovations in different areas of artificial intelligence.
