PAISS 2019 : Prairie AI Summer School

from October 3, 2019 to October 5, 2019

The PRAIRIE AI Summer School comprises lectures conducted by renowned experts in different areas of artificial intelligence. The second edition of this event is ?co-organized by Inria and the French 3IA Institutes 'PRAIRIE' and 'MIAI Grenoble Alpes'. The programme of the 3-day event includes a number of lectures in different areas of artificial intelligence such as machine learning, natural language processing, computer vision, robotics and healthcare.
More than a dozen renowned international experts have already been announced as speakers and we invite you to browse the list on the PAISS website:

Applications for the summer school are open to students (Masters, PhD), postdocs, faculty, researchers in academia and industry, and other professionals.?

To increase the diversity of participating students with skills in AI, we are organizing an industry sponsorship program for which we would like your support. This sponsorship will allow students who, without this initiative, would be unable to take part. We believe that increasing the opportunity for everyone to have access to the school will be of benefit to the entire community. The lack of diversity in AI is a recognized problem and helping to change this is a key part of the mission of all the 3IA Institutes.
By joining this industry sponsorship program you will support this initiative for change. Your company will be mentioned in the opening keynote of the summer school, and your logo will appear on the PAISS website and at social events. We will organize a separate meeting with the group of students during the summer school where you can get to know them and their institutions. They will naturally go home as ambassadors not only of PAISS and 3IA, but also of the companies who made it possible for them to have such an experience.

The minimum level of sponsorship for this program is 1000 euros for each of our partners willing to contribute, which approximately corresponds to sponsoring one student. Larger contributions are welcome. If you would like to take part, please reply to <paiss2019@inria.fr> before September 7th. Please contact us for further details or if you have any questions.
Any parallel diversity initiatives from industrial partners with larger contributions, and sponsoring related to other aspects of the summer school are also welcome, and will be publicized on the summer school website. Feel free to contact us to discuss these other options.

Thank you for your support.
