Edith Elkind elected to AAAI Executive Council


The Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) has elected Professor Edith Elkind as one of four new Councillors. Yolanda Gil, (AAAI President) commented on the new Executive Council, saying, ‘AAAI is the energetic organization that it is today because of the generosity of many who step up to become elected officers and do very important service for the community.’

The AAAI was founded in 1979 as a non-profit scientific society devoted to advancing the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behaviour and their embodiment in machines. AAAI aims to promote research in, and responsible use of, artificial intelligence, and to increase public understanding of the field.
