The Austrian Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence (OFAI) is
delighted to announce its 2022 Lecture Series, featuring an eclectic
lineup of internal and external speakers.

The talks are intended to familiarize attendees with the latest research
developments in AI and related fields, and to forge new connections with
those working in other areas.

Most lectures (see prospective schedule below) will take place on
Wednesdays at 18:30 Central European (Summer) Time. All lectures will be
held online via Zoom; in-person attendance at OFAI is also possible for
certain lectures. Talks typically last from 30 to 50 minutes and are
followed by up to 30 minutes for questions.

Attendance is open to the public and free of charge. No registration is
required.
