February 23-24, 2023

2nd CASL Workshop

at Mohamed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence (MBZUAI)

Theme: Applications of AI at Scale

AI at scale is powering new breakthroughs in science for good, including drug design, clean energy, climate change, pandemic mitigation, creative content generation, and intelligence automation.

The 2nd CASL Workshop brings together vision holders from industry, academia, non-profits, and government to share their vision for AI in science for good, as well as technology enablers to share how we can make the pursuit of AI at scale a responsible endeavor with lower energy and carbon costs, and open-source software that is accessible to all organizations.

About CASL

The Composable, Automatic and Scalable Learning (CASL) organization brings together technologists who envision that the broader public — the “power of many” — can collaboratively build Artificial Intelligence as easily as stacking “Lego” blocks. We explore how AI can be built in a holistic, “all levels” approach that covers data, models, training/inference algorithms, meta-learning, parallelization, scheduling, resource management and software infrastructure.

Our work is available as open source.
