IVADO Digital October 2022

Share the event

Join us at the Campus MIL on October 21, 2022 to take part in IVADO Digital October! This great bilingual meeting of student research in AI was born in virtual format in 2020 and we are looking forward to holding this third edition in person for the first time. Hundreds of participants are expected: we look forward to seeing you there! Designed by students, for students, the day is structured around about 50 presentations during which IVADO-supported students present their research work on exciting and varied topics such as the role of social media in political polarization and misinformation, the prediction of epileptic seizures, or the detection of extragalactic planetary nebulae! It is also a great opportunity to network with hundreds of students involved in AI research. The level of popularization of the conferences allows anyone interested in the field to benefit from the event. Take advantage of it!
