Invited Talk

Greater outreach: beyond AI researchers

Francesca Rossi
IBM Research

We researchers are very used to talk to our colleagues, who speak the same “language”, have the same interests, and share the same drivers. However, to make sure that our work has a greater impact, we need to be able to speak and be understood also by many others: AI researchers working in other areas of AI, experts of other computer science areas, scholars from other disciplines, including humanities and arts, media people, policy makers, and the public at large. They are not interested nor have the technical knowledge to appreciate the details of our theoretical of experimental work, but they can and should care
about the possible impact of what we do, and how our work can generate that impact.

In this talk I will mention how to structure and design a talk to reach different audiences, so to make our work accessible to many beyond AI researchers.
