15 September 2022 | 8:45 am - 6 pm | Uni Mail

The University of Geneva (UNIGE) Data Science Day is an interdisciplinary study day on artificial intelligence and its various scientific applications for researchers at the University. Each year, the Data Science Competences Center aims to stimulate a collective reflection on a particular theme.

For this edition, the theme is Promises of Artificial Intelligence: An Interdisciplinary Revolution. To embrace the diversity of the work carried out at the UNIGE on this theme, this scientific symposium will be articulated around three dimensions of Artificial Intelligence (AI):

  • AI and the fundamental knowledge on which its development is based.
  • AI as an applied tool in the context of a growing number of research projects. 
  • AI as a research object, which must be approached in a critical manner.
