CHAIR Spotlight on Research

CHAIR Spotlight on Research

​​Chalmers AI Research Center, CHAIR Spotlight on Research is a series of AI short talks hosting researchers from Chalmers. The seminars are targeted towards experts from the Chair Consortium core partners as well as other Chalmers researchers.

Our aim is to increase awareness of AI at Chalmers between Chalmers researchers and AI experts in industry. In the seminars, speakers present an overview of their current research and thoughts for new research, ideas, challenges – anything they believe to be of interest for other researchers. The seminar is taking place online and is scheduled to contain 30 minutes of presentation and 15 minutes of discussion. 
The seminars are open t​o all and are free of charge. CHAIR Spotlight Research talks are taking place on Fridays 13.00-13.45.

Simon Olsson

Simon Olsson is Assistant Professor for Applied Artificial Intelligence at the Data Science and AI section of Computer Science and Engineering, Chalmers.
In 2013 the University of Copenhagen awarded Simon Olsson a Ph.D. in Bioinformatics for his work in probabilistic modeling of protein ensembles from averaged data under Thomas Hamelryck. Following his Ph.D., he was award several postdoctoral fellowships to spend time, first in Switzerland at the ETH Zürich and IRB Bellinzona, and later in Germany at the Freie Universität Berlin. Simons research focuses on the interface between machine learning and experimental, theoretical, and computational aspects of the natural sciences.
