PR[AI]RIE celebrates its 2nd anniversary!

Last Tuesday 9th November PR[AI]RIE Institute founded by CNRS, Inria, Institut Pasteur, Université de Paris and Université PSL celebrated its 2nd anniversary!

The event PR[AI]RIE Day was hosted by Université Paris Dauphine – PSL. Inspiring talks by top level researchers, including two Turing Award Laureates: Yann LeCun, VP & Chief AI Scientist at Facebook and Silver Professor at NYU and Raj Reddy, University Professor at Carnegie Mellon University, as well as PR[AI]RIE industry partners, attracted almost 500 attendees. 

PR[AI]RIE Day offered a great opportunity to evaluate what has been achieved so far by the Institute but also to look into the future and possible new collaborations.

Below are a few snapshots from the day:
