AI Days

The University of Florida has dedicated tremendous resources to the application of AI in disciplines across the campus. There are over 100 new AI faculty who have been added to our ranks, and more to come. We have set aside October 27-28, 2022 as AI Days to welcome those faculty to UF and highlight the research and educational activities around campus. On Thursday, Oct 27th, UF is awarding over $50,000 in prize money to student winners of an AI Pitch Competition and an AI Hackathon. On Friday, Oct 28th, we will have panel discussions highlighting the application of AI to various disciplines. In addition, we will have a poster session for students, postdocs, staff, and faculty to present AI research. There will be ample time both days to meet other colleagues interested in AI. Breakfast and Lunch are provided with some reserved parking as well.  Please mark Oct 27-28, 2022 on your calendar (8:00AM – 3:00PM), register below, and join us at the Emerson Alumni Hall to celebrate UF’s AI Initiative.
