Congratulations to the selected participants in the AAAI New Faculty Highlights Program!
This year, AAAI launched a new invited speaker program highlighting AI researchers who have just begun careers as new faculty members or the equivalent in industry. Applications were adjudicated by a committee consisting of the AAAI-21 chairs and a diverse group of AAAI Fellows.
New Faculty Highlight participants have submitted prerecorded videos for viewing throughout the conference, which broadly survey the candidate’s research to date. Links to these videos are included below, if available. Invited speakers will also be invited to contribute an article to a corresponding series in AI Magazine.
