Time 09:00 16:00
Location Aarhus, Denmark

DIGHUMLAB and Human Futures at Aarhus University invite humanities researchers to join us for a full-day workshop on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) on November 28, 2019 from 9AM to 4PM in Richard Mortensen Stuen (building 1422).

The workshop is a basic introduction to AI and ML that touches upon e.g. natural language processing and computer vision. The format of the workshop provides rich opportunities to ask questions, discuss, network and situate the learnings within your own research projects.

After the workshop, there will be an informal networking event in Studiecaféen, Studenterhus AARHUS (the room just opposite Richard Mortensen Stuen) to discuss further. 

The workshop is free of charge and open to researchers (PhD level and above) from the institutions in the DIGHUMLAB consortium (Aalborg University, Aarhus University, University of Copenhagen, University of Southern Denmark and The Royal Danish Library.
