RIT’s Move78 Artificial Intelligence Seminar highlighting research in its growing artificial intelligence (AI) community resumes this fall with sessions taking place from noon to 1 p.m. on Mondays throughout the semester.

The series focuses on topics such as machine learning, neuromorphic computing and computer vision, all key research areas at RIT. It is open to faculty and staff participants and those interested in learning more about AI research underway. Registration is not required for the seminar; refreshments will be served.

Speakers include faculty-researchers from RIT’s colleges as well as colleagues from nearby universities:

This past spring, RIT established the Center for Center for Human-Aware Artificial Intelligence (CHAI), and brought together faculty-researchers across campus involved in work using AI and other related topical areas that include deep learning for vision, machine intelligence, brain-inspired computing and big data analytics. Faculty in the Kate Gleason College of Engineering, B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences, Saunders College of Business, the College of Science and the College of Liberal Arts built CHAI to encourage cross-college and corporate collaborations in AI and cognitive technologies and to further RIT’s direction to expand its AI capabilities.

The speaker series is sponsored by the Office of the Provost and the Center for Human-Aware Artificial Intelligence at RIT. To request interpreting services, contact http://myaccess.rit.edu.
