You will learn to find your story and communicate it to your audience.
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.
