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.

Congratulations to all of our students who are graduating this year!
Hopefully we will see most of you again on Wednesday 14 June where the School will host a small reception in the coffee area between 11.00 and 13.00 for you and your guests, with a glass of bubbly and of course some cakes from Fisher and Donaldson.
Congratulations to Abd Alsattar Ardati, supervised by Dr Alex Voss, Dr Uta Hinrichs, Prof Ian Gent & Dr Angie Miguel, who has passed his PhD viva subject to minor corrections.
Many thanks to Prof Sampsa Hyysalo (Aalto University) for serving as the external examiner and to Dr Jason Jacques for being the internal examiner.
We had a wonderful time yesterday at the Doors Open day. We welcomed more than 200 visitors who were interested in learning more about our programs, facilities, and research.
We showcased some of our cutting-edge projects in artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction, and software engineering. Our visitors had the chance to interact with virtual reality systems, and smart devices. They also learned about the ethical and social implications of these technologies.
Special Thanks to Ruth Hoffmann, Ken Boyd and Kirsty Ross who organised the event. We would also like to thank everyone who attended the doors open day and made it a success. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. If you have any questions or feedback, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
We look forward to seeing you again soon!
