More than 400 university students participated in the HIAS Universal AI Course, which was organized by the Hellenic Institute of Advanced Studies (HIAS), in the framework of the HIAS Summer Events 2023. The 3-day course was held during 2-5 July 2023, on the premises of NCSR Demokritos.
The purpose of the AI course was to familiarize students from diverse backgrounds, including science, engineering, law, medicine, social sciences, humanities, and the arts, with the latest developments in AI and its potential to revolutionize various fields.
During those 3 days, a diverse group of experts shared their insights and discussed the current trends in AI, the challenges of AI application development, as well as the opportunities and benefits that arise from integrating AI into various domains.
