Our ART-AI students have been making the most of attending online conferences during the pandemic.  Elsa Zhong talks about her recent experience at the 24th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence;

“Last week, I attended the ECAI 2020. Due to the impact of Covid-19, the conference was held online and was free to attend.   It proved to be a very valuable learning opportunity for an Early-Career AI Researcher like myself.

In the Plenary talk “How Not to Destroy the World with AI” given by Stuart Russell, Professor of Computer Science, UC Berkeley, I proposed a question to Stuart, who, not only patiently answered my question in the plenary talk, but also made time to have a discussion with me after his talk and recommended relevant readings to me.  

In addition, I attended the Doctoral Consortium Training, a session about Presenting Research to potential Investors, and I had the opportunity to network with other AI researchers.

I believe that all these experiences will help me greatly with my individual research and future career.   The fact that many conferences are now being delivered on a virtual platform has, in many ways, made them more accessible and I intend to partake in more over the coming months.”
