The AAAI 35th conference on artificial intelligence started on 2 February. So far, we’ve been treated to some excellent invited talks, tutorial sessions, and diversity and inclusion events. The poster sessions are also now in full swing. Here is our round-up of the first few days of the conference as seen by the Twitter-sphere.
Excited to share the best paper awards for #AAAI2021. The best papers include (1) Informer (about transformers in NLP) by Haoyi Zhou: https://t.co/v5PLbUOyrK, (2) Exploration-exploitation in multi-agent learning by Stefanos Leonardos: https://t.co/1gqkagU7Pr <1 of 3>.

The invited talk by @BarzilayRegina in @RealAAAI is beyond good. Models give confidence to the predictions, but shared stories give strength to people.

#AAAI2021 review lengths across topic areas (..and a comparison to the same stats from #IJCAI2016..).
Somethings don't change.
While other communities save their time for writing more papers, Planning folk use it for writing longer reviews 😋

The deep impact #AI is already having on our lives has provoked hopes and fears in equal measure among general public and experts.
It is my pleasure to reflect on this today at 4.30pm (GMT+1) in the #AAAI2021 panel with such distinguished guests! https://t.co/4kQG7EJHrP pic.twitter.com/9NAgQ7dU8x
