The AI research theme members came together in an internal event on Tuesday 6 June. We discussed our latest projects, shared our insights and challenges, and brainstormed new ideas for future research. It was a great opportunity to connect with our colleagues and learn from each other.
We look forward to more opportunities to collaborate and grow as an AI group.
