Summer School on
16-20 September 2019

Villa del Grumello, Como (Italy)

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming a core research and application area, pervading many fields of knowledge and offering new perspective in the computational landscape of the future. The main purpose of this first edition of the Summer School “Advances in Artificial Intelligence” is to gather scholars, researchers and PhD students to learn and explore the main advanced topics offered by AI with a wide look towards new perspectives coming by innovative technological scenarios.

The structure of the School comprises five main sessions: “Learning, reasoning and beyond”, “Frontiers of knowledge representation”, “Social and collective intelligence”, “Affective, virtual and interactive AI”, and “Worlds of AI applications”.

The organization of the School includes presentations, discussions and contributions, and proposes research challenges and open issues, as well as concrete case studies related to research and application projects. Participants will be asked to actively contribute in the discussions and PhD students will be required to develop a final project proposing a novel integrated research or application proposal exploiting the knowledge and information acquired throughout the courses. The participants will earn 2.5 credits from the PhD School of the University of Milano-Bicocca.

The Summer School is under the Patronage of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence and it is organized by the CINI National Lab – University of Milano-Bicocca Node “Artificial Intelligence and Intelligent Systems”.
