At the University of Southampton AI Society we aim to create a common learning space for people with an interest in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.

Every year, on a two-week basis, we run beginner and advanced workshops for our members, focusing on the most practical uses of Machine Learning. Some of the topics we cover include Deep Learning, Recommendation Systems, Model Deployment and Object Detection with YOLO.

We also organise talks with professionals from the AI industry and with research staff from well-known institutes, as well as hackathons and events.
