AISys Reading Group - softsys4ai/readingroup Wiki

Welcome to AISys reading group!

The paper reading group meets weekly during the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters to discuss papers in artificial intelligence, machine learning, systems, and software engineering. Participation is open to all, guests are always welcome; if you are interested in receiving invitations contact the organizer.

Each week we will discuss a different paper. The paper to discuss is announced about one week in advance by the organizer. All participants are expected to read the paper before the meeting. It is recommended to take notes about insights, questions, and other points potentially worth discussing.

The goals of the reading group are:

We follow these simple rules:

Guideline for selecting papers:

Topics of Interests:

Good Resources:

The discussion is limited to 60-90 min. The discussion is lead by a moderator, who may also set a focus for the discussion. The moderator will kick off the meeting by giving a summary of the paper and raising a few points for discussion. The moderator should try to incorporate all participants into the discussion. The moderator role rotates through all participants. The moderator is encouraged to help with the selection of a paper that week.

**Time and location: Friday 11:00 AM (EST)
