We organize events discovering various aspects of AI. The aim of the events is to broaden the expertise about how the AI and related technologies are affecting our societies. Besides public events we organize smaller gatherings, reading groups and networking events around the theme.
Our event series are Turku AI Week and National Seminar of Theoretical AI. Turku AI Week include events for various disciplines and industries. The Week is organized in February and with a collaboration with various faculties and departments of University of Turku, Turku Science Park and Turku Business Region, Shift-festival and other organizations.
The core of the National Seminar of Theoretical AI is to connect scholars and experts working with the theoretical perspectives and approaches related to the development of AI. Turku AI Society is a founding member of the seminar and has collaborated with the student associations of philosophy in Finland. We are looking forward to new collaboration partners for the next seminar.
