Leidse AI-Week

Leiden AI Week

Monday 5 September 2022 - Tuesday 13 September 2022


Intelligent cars, video games that adapt to your play style or the perfect match in an app: artificial intelligence (AI) has an increasing impact on our daily lives – and it is changing them too. What are the opportunities of AI? And the threats? Researchers from Leiden University will address these questions from a variety of disciplines. But AI also offers inspiration and opportunities to artists and museums. All this knowledge and art will come together in Leiden AI Week.

From 5 to 13 September Leiden will be the setting for all kinds of activities about and with AI. For children, researchers, art lovers... in short, anyone who wants to find out more about AI. What’s on the programme?

More activities will be added to this page soon.
