This year’s theme, Collaborative Bridge, aims to provide a platform for disciplines to come together and explore new opportunities and perspectives. The Bridge theme highlights and enhances AAAI’s historical role as an incubator of new AI disciplines.
“I am thrilled with the caliber of speakers, workshops, and tutorials in store for the attendees of this year’s conference,” said Francesca Rossi, AAAI president. “I am looking forward to seeing how speakers and participants will be embracing the Bridge theme. Also, after two years of virtual events, it’s exciting to bring everyone together and safely in person. I also want to congratulate all the awards recipients, the new fellows, and the new senior members. ”
