Everyone uses language; not only humans, but also computers. However, the differences between these two kinds of languages are very big. Current research concerns replicating, recognizing and understanding natural language using computers to be able to communicate efficiently and intuitively with computers. With this symposium, you will gain more insight into the combination of AI and language and recent developments.
Are you interested in the latest developments regarding the research field of Artificial Intelligence?

ACAIS is an annual symposium organised by a team of students, all studying Artificial Intelligence at the Radboud University. ACAIS and the committee are part of study association CognAC. Our philosophy: for and by students; organising an event that stimulates new insights and the exchange of information.
ACAIS is non-profit and is fully funded by ticket fees, subsidies and sponsorships. See below for everyone who contributed to nine years of ACAIS history.
