ML@GT Announces Fall Seminar Series Speakers

Each semester, hundreds of students, faculty, and external guests are treated to talks by some of the world’s most renowned scientists. This fall, the Machine Learning Center at Georgia Tech (ML@GT) will host five talks as a part of its Fall Seminar Series.

Speakers come from industry and academia, giving attendees exposure to problems being solved by both entities. Talks touch on current topics in machine learning and artificial intelligence, applications for technologies, and related insights and experiences. Past speakers have included the likes of Pieter Abbeel, Magic Leap’s Ashwin Swaminathan and Prateek Singhal, Hugo Larochelle, and Manuela Veloso.

“We are proud to be able to bring world-class researchers to our campus to further explore different areas of machine learning and artificial intelligence. Talks like these are important for continuing to grow the ML community and broadening the public’s awareness about where the field is headed. We’re looking forward to another great semester of exciting talks,” said Irfan Essa, director of ML@GT.

The series kicks off on Sept. 4 with Galen Reeves, an assistant professor from Duke University. Talks will be given every other Wednesday at 12:15 p.m. in the Marcus Nanotechnology Building unless otherwise noted. All talks are open to the public.
