FLAIR (Future Leaders of AI Retreat) brings together world-class, senior PhD students who are active in the broad area of Artificial Intelligence research from leading labs around the globe. The goal is to set a stage for the future stars to meet and debate against each other, and to meet and communicate with researchers and industrial labs in this region.
The participants are hand-picked by a small committee of reputed top young scholars. Candidates are typically within two years of graduation, and have produced high-quality works in this year. Participants of 2017 FLAIR include students from world-leading research groups such as CMU, Stanford, MIT, Berkeley, Cambridge, NYU, Univ of Washington etc.. The agenda includes theory and core algorithms, natural language processing, computer vision, games and general intelligence, and creative arts with artificial intelligence.
The workshop is initiated by faculties of NYU Shanghai, co-organized by NYU Shanghai Center for Data Science, UniDT Technology, and Amazon AWS labs. Sponsored by Shanghai Municipal Peoples Government, Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Chinese Academy of Engineering.
