Start Time
9:00 a.m.

Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML) hold great potential to impact the work performed at the APS. There are many exciting activities already underway, and many more are being planned. Now is a great time to hold a workshop focused on AI/ML activities at the APS to meet with our colleagues, talk about current projects, discuss tools, exchange ideas and experiences, and inspire collaboration.
The APS AI/ML workshop will be held over two sessions: Tuesday, January 21, 2020 from 9 AM to Noon, and Friday, January 24, 2020 from 9 AM to Noon. Both sessions will be in Building 401 Room A1100.
