Virtual SPARKS: Artificial Intelligence

The Office of Research, Innovation, and Economic Development (ORIED) is hosting SPARKS: Artificial Intelligence on Wednesday, February 3 from 3–5 p.m. Launched in 2017, SPARKS (Seeking Partnerships to Advance Research, Knowledge, and Science) events bring UT faculty from multiple disciplines together around a common theme to learn and network. Attendees will leave with a better sense of UT-wide expertise and capacity in artificial intelligence, along with contact information for both speakers and attendees, and, hopefully, some inspiration to reach out and initiate a new collaboration with someone.

The event will begin with a keynote address by UT’s own Dr. Lynne Parker, who currently serves as the Director of the National Artificial Intelligence Initiative Office, Deputy United States Chief Technology Officer, and Assistant Director of Artificial Intelligence at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. The keynote will be followed by a series of 4-minute “lightning talk” presentations by UT faculty about how their research relates to artificial intelligence.
