Agenda

HAI and Stanford University are actively monitoring the status of COVID-19 (coronavirus). The university has strongly encouraged the cancellation or postponement of large events scheduled on campus at least through April 15. In accordance with this university policy, HAI's April 1, 2020 conference on Triangulating Intelligence: Melding Neuroscience, Psychology, and AI has been cancelled. We hope to reschedule the event for later in the year.
