Leading scientists and researchers from across New Zealand will come together for two days at the Artificial Intelligence Researchers Association (AIRA) Annual Conference later this month.

On the 28th and 29th November 2022, data scientists, engineers and environmental scientists will have the opportunity to present their work, collaborate with experts in the field and discuss the latest advances in artificial technology (AI).

This year’s conference also includes a Data Science Platform Workshop, which will cover the eight data science programmes funded by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment’s (MBIE) Strategic Science Investment Fund and Catalyst Fund, including TAIAO.

AI Professor Albert Bifet says it is a fantastic opportunity for data science and AI researchers at any stage of their career to attend and meet others in the field.

“The conference provides members of the AIRA a great space to collaborate, discuss and present their current or future research with likeminded people,” says Professor Bifet.

“Our inaugural event last year was a great success; attendees were able to bounce research ideas off each other and discuss tactics for their current research. Based on the number and quality of abstracts we’ve received for this year’s event; I think it will be another huge success.”

Last year’s abstracts included research on how machine learning can enhance healthcare and aid better patient care by classifying medical text (presented by Vithya Yogarajan) and creating a method for machine learning to predict when extreme precipitation events such as storms, warm/cold fronts and cyclones occur (presented by Fareeda Begum).
