The Automagic Home, and also an introduction to the Mundania Files

AI Lund 2019 revisited 3 June 2020


The Corona crisis prevents the physical meetings and discussions that have so far been a central part of AI Lund's outreach activities. But in order to continue dialogue and joint learning, we now try a series of online lunch seminars. Together we watch one or more presentations from previous AI Lund events for 20-30 minutes. Then an expert, often. the original speaker, are there to answer questions for 10-15 minutes. You can also ask questions in the text chat during the video. The presentations can be in Swedish or English, and you can ask questions in both languages.
