Modern Topics in AI

This year’s summer school will take place August 19-23 at KTH, Stockholm. We’ll start together with the AS-track in room Q1.

The theme this year for the AI-track is “Modern Topics in AI”, where we will dive deep into several recent publications in the field. The school format will consist of an exciting mix of lectures, hands-on exercises and social activities.

Although not strictly mandatory, we expect all of you to attend the summer school. Note: affiliated students must find/pay their own accommodation.

You’ll find a detailed program down below. Further updates will be done as we approach.

In the evening of Thursday 22nd a common dinner will be held in Stockholm’s stunning archipelago. M/S Waxholm III will leave Nybrokajen, (see map) at 18:00. Please be there at least 15 minutes before departure. A three course dinner will be served (fish and chicken), wine package is included. Please note, if you want to buy additional drinks on board, only cash in SEK is accepted
