The annual meeting of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) is one of the world’s leading conferences in the field of artificial intelligence.

USC will present 14 publications at the Thirty-Fourth Conference on Artificial Intelligence in New York, USA.

USC will once again have a substantial presence at the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) 2020 Conference on Artificial Intelligence, with 14 publications touching on a variety of aspects including object removal for autonomous driving, idle time optimization and human-machine collaboration.

The AAAI annual meeting is one of the world’s leading conferences in the field of artificial intelligence. The event aims to promote research in artificial intelligence and scientific exchange among researchers, practitioners, scientists, and engineers in affiliated disciplines. The thirty-fourth annual conference will take place Feb. 7 to 12, 2020, in New York, USA.

Computer Science Associate Professor Fei Sha is one of the conference’s program chairs. This year’s event reported a record-high number of over 8,800 submissions — a thousand more than last year, with 7,737 submissions were reviewed and 1,591 accepted.
