Recent developments in the field of AI have led to an increased coverage in the media, and it is important that policy makers, business leaders, and the general public are aware of the reality of today’s technology. We can all help by communicating about AI in a clear, informed, and measured manner.
During the session, we will guide participants on how to quickly shape the story of their AI research. We’ll focus on how to structure this research story to form a blog post. Participants will learn how to explain their research to a general audience in a clear and concise manner. We will also touch on how to find suitable images and how to avoid hype when promoting research.

Together with our colleagues at Robohub, we have put together a series of bite-sized videos. These can be watched as a supplement to this session.
