Modern datasets are often distributed across many locations. This workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners in the database, networking, distributed systems, and storage fields in order to bridge the gap in research within wide-area data analytics.
A rise in real-world applications of AI has stimulated significant interest from the public, media, and policy makers, including the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP). Along with this increasing attention has come media-fueled concerns about purported negative consequences of AI, which often overlooks the societal benefits that AI is delivering and can deliver in the near future. This symposium will focus on the promise of AI across multiple sectors of society. We seek to bring together AI researchers and researchers/practitioners/experts/policy makers from a wide variety of domains.
