Frontiers in AI and Applications

2017 Workshop of Swarm Agent Club

23 July 2017

Swarma Club

Beijing, China

About


We are Swarma Club, a Beijing-based and globally distributed network for junior Chinese scholars. We are organizing a summer workshop on “Frontiers in AI and Applications” on July 23 in Beijing. With the financial support from Kaifeng Foundation, we will hold a new institute this summer, following our annual meetups in 2015 and 2016. From July 18-21 we will have an exclusive workshop in Gubei Water Town, a resort near Beijing, with ~20 junior scholars. We are hoping to see you in Beijing, too.

The vision of Swarma Club is open, interdisciplinary sciences outside the college boundaries. It took ten years for us to evolve into one of the largest independent, nonprofit research networks in China. Our members have published a variety of teamwork in impactful journals and conferences, including Physical Review Letters and International Conference on Computer Vision, collectively contributed to two books on AI, and are leading several start-ups, including auto-driving software company Momenta (A Round $500 million in 2016) founded by Xudong Chao, and weather predicting service Color Cloud (Angel Round $50 million in 2014) founded by Xingyuan Yuan.
