What is AI Agora?

In 1956 in Dartmouth, New Hamsphire, a group of scientists met up for discussions on how computers can be made more intelligent, and coined the term artificial intelligence (AI). Since then AI has been considered a part of computer science. It has had its ups and downs, with optimism in the 60-ies and 80-ies and less interest in other decades. Today AI is again a top topic both as a science and in the public.

At the University of Bergen, researchers at the Department of Information Science and Media Studies have worked in the field for several decades. An agora is a Greek term for a meeting place where people discuss public matters (and also a market place). Thus, the AI Agora is an initiative from the Department of Information Science and Media Studies, and constitutes a lecture and discussion series about artificial intelligence in theory and as applied science. AI Agora presents international guests as well as local speakers.
