Posted on March 31, 2024

The Penn State Artificial Intelligence (AI) Week is a week-long event to celebrate all of the disparate threads of AI across Penn State. The week is coordinated by the AI Hub and a full schedule of events is set for the inaugural Penn State AI Week during April 1-5,.

“Our first AI week offers something for everyone in the Penn State community,” said David Hunter, director of the AI Hub. “Various academic departments, the AI centers and other key groups involved in AI and AI research have come together to plan a robust series of virtual and in-person sessions across Penn State’s campuses.”
