EPFL is located in Switzerland and is one of the most vibrant and cosmopolitan science and technology institutions. EPFL has both a Swiss and international vocation and focuses on three missions: teaching, research and innovation.

The Center for Intelligent Systems (CIS) at EPFL, a joint initiative of the schools ENAC, IC, SB, STI, and SV seeks to advance research and practice in the strategic field of intelligent systems.

RIKEN is Japan’s largest comprehensive research institution renowned for high-quality research in a diverse range of scientific disciplines.

RIKEN Center for Advanced Intelligence Project (AIP) houses more than 30 research teams ranging from fundamentals of machine learning and optimization, applications in medicine, materials, and disaster, to the analysis of ethics and social impact of artificial intelligence.

All participants are required to agree with the AIP Seminar Series Code of Conduct.
Please see the URL below.


RIKEN AIP will expect adherence to this code throughout the event. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.
