… joint with Guy Katz, from HUJI, is running this Summer. We are meeting with various colleagues from the National Robotarium to discuss what kind of properties of complex AI systems Robotics engineers and AI researchers want to verify. Guy’s lectures at SPLV are a part of the project: http://www.macs.hw.ac.uk/splv/splv-2021/
LAIV is starting a reading group, devoted to discussion of relevant papers in AI and Verification. The reading group has its own page. Join us!
We are inviting applications to several academic positions at the CS department, at all levels of academic career: Assistant/Associate/Full Professor, and even the Head of Department. See the summary here.
We are now in the middle of the 2nd term. Several MSc students joined LAIV in January, and already started to present their projects at LAIV Seminars.
