LITTLE ROCK – Representatives of seven Arkansas universities came together Friday to discuss and demonstrate their work at the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Campus Demonstration Showcase.

The showcase took place at the Arkansas State University System Office in Little Rock, with demonstrations during the morning and afternoon.

“The AI Campus has brought students, postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty together in teams with coaches across the state, with each of the projects starting at the frontier of the artificial intelligence discipline,” according to Dr. Xiuzhen Huang, director of AI Campus, professor of computer science at Arkansas State, and Arkansas Research Alliance Fellow.
