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. The seminars run weekly, and feature invited talks, as well as student talks. Past LAIV talks are available on our YouTube page. We always welcome external visitors and collaborators, the seminar page explains how to join the seminar series.
As part of the AISEC grant activities, we have launched a Youtube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuYLyAKf2mEq4ZSvMfwbfIg/featured) featuring speakers from LAIV Seminars. Subscribe to the Youtube channel or drop in to LAIV seminars: http://laiv.uk/laiv-seminars/

Great job, Kirsty!
We are organising a workshop on Trends, Extensions, Applications and Semantics of Logic Programming and 28-29 May 2020. We invite participants to check out pre-recorded talks and join live discussions: https://www.coalg.org/tease-lp/.
We are starting a big, multi-site and multi-million project on AI verification in September 2020! The project AISEC: AI Secure and Explainable by Construction is funded by EPSRC, and will investigate novel methods of AI verification in Autonomous vehicles and conversational agents. We are looking for Research assistants and PhD students: see http://laiv.uk/index.php/vacancies/
