AI Event Policy
Talks, reading groups, and events across the Stanford AI lab community. Note that some events are open to the public, some are open to only to Stanford people, and others are open to only individual groups (audience is denoted by brackets). If you are in the Stanford AI lab and would like to add an event, you can get edit access by contacting the respective representative from your research group.
The Stanford AI Lab Distinguished Speaker Series features talks given by the leaders of AI. The goal of these talks is to give an overview and foster discussion about the progress and challenges in the various disciplines of AI.
Many postdocs, PhDs, masters, and undergraduate students involved in SAIL Research also spend time setting up events to build a sense of community, benefit fellow students, and help share the work of SAIL with the world. These activities are supported by SAIL leadership. You can see more details in the page linked above.
The AI salon is a semi-monthly gathering of the Stanford AI lab to discuss questions that go beyond the day-to-day research in AI. It is held in the style of 18th-century French enlightenment-era salons, with no electronics, no whiteboard presentations, and an hourglass to keep time. The goal is to bring everyone together twice a month to contemplate the future of a fast-moving field. Past topics have included the ethics of autonomous driving, the role of theory in robotics, and intelligence augmentation. (Unless it is otherwise noted, AI Salon is only for current AI Lab members and their invited guests.)
The first official coalition between the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (SAIL) and a cluster of corporate partners to foster discussions between artificial intelligence researchers and venture capitalists interested in real-world AI applications. Exchange of knowledge between the communities will identify valuable non-technical constraints involved in developing commercially viable AI solutions.
