Microsoft renews its bet for Artificial Intelligence by supporting ECAI2020

Microsoft shows its commitment with ECAI 2020 by becoming main partner of the conference. Their sponsorship includes “The AI Way to Santiago de Compostela” activity, a section of the Way of St. James that will be done the day before the conference start.

The Microsoft company has confirmed its role as a main sponsor of ECAI2020. The 24th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence will thus count on the confidence of the technological giant, one of the main actors in the area worldwide.

At Microsoft, researchers in artificial intelligence are harnessing the explosion of digital data and computational power with advanced algorithms to enable collaborative and natural interactions between people and machines that extend the human ability to sense, learn and understand. The research infuses computers, materials and systems with the ability to reason, communicate and perform with humanlike skill and agility.

Microsoft’s deep investments in the field are advancing the state of the art in machine intelligence and perception, enabling computers that understand what they see, communicate in natural language, answer complex questions and interact with their environment. In addition, the company’s researchers are thought leaders on the ethics and societal impacts of intelligent technologies. The research, tools and services that result from this investment are woven into existing and new products and, at the same time, made open and accessible to the broader community in a bid to accelerate innovation, democratize AI and solve the world’s most pressing challenges.

The 24th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence will emerge as Europe’s premier AI Research venue, deploying a full programme of technical papers and many AI-related events of interest for researchers, students and all attendants who are interested on contemporary AI.
