FCAI Special Interest groups (SIGs)

FCAI SIG - WHAT IS IT?

FCAI SIGs are formed by groups of people around a common theme of interest, e.g. a specific sub-field of AI, or an application area of AI.

FCAI SIGs offer important contributions to the FCAI research and impact agenda and take advantage of FCAI research program results.


FCAI SIG - WHAT WILL YOU GAIN?

FCI SIGs gather and explore AI-related themes and ideas. They provide you easy access for collaboration, and a dynamic forum of networks, across a number of fields and applications. Working with like-minded people having diverse expertise will generate new ideas around AI, and speed up their iteration to converge into focused efforts.

Our hope is that diverse SIG activities lead to increased collaboration not only within the SIGs, but also at the intersections of SIGs and the FCAI research programmes, helping in identifying new opportunities for collaboration, leading to joint papers and joint research project proposals, and in getting more people involved with the FCAI research programmes, or in some cases eventually even in planning of new FCAI research programme proposals.


FCAI SIG - WHAT SUPPORT does FCAI PROVIDE?

FCAI supports the selected SIGs in organization of meetings, seminars, workshops, visits of foreign experts, in communications, and in other activities leading towards a more integrated ecosystem, and tries to identify links between the SIG communities, the ongoing FCAI research programmes, and the overall FCAI ecosystem.
