Public event:
"The Future of Artificial Intelligence"
School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh


As part of a symposium devoted to the work of Prof Alan Bundy in the
area of Artificial Intelligence, there will be a public afternoon
session on Sunday 13th July, with the theme of the future of
Artificial Intelligence.  This will be held in Lecture Theatre 1 of
the Appleton Tower, Crichton St, Edinburgh, 2:00-5:30 pm.

Two experienced leading European researchers, Fausto Giunchiglia from
Italy and Joerg Siekmann from Germany, will present their personal
overviews of the future possibilities made available by recent
technological advances.  There will also be a round table on the
topic, involving speakers from the symposium, and opportunity to
interact with researchers in the area.

The presentations will be accessible to the general public, and
provide a unique occasion to gain insight into research trends in AI.
All those interested are warmly encouraged to attend and participate
in this event.

Afterwards, there will be a reception held in the Informatics Forum -
our new, state-of-the-art building for Informatics research - which
will have just been formally opened and will be hosting its first
event.  This is just across the road from Appleton Tower.  All are
welcome to attend.

Please forward this to anyone else you think might be interested.
