Impressions from the NATO conference

A few impressions from this year’s NATO conference. It was an incredible honor to get an invitation to speak on the main stage at such an event, and of course, I was happy to attend as a service to the public.

Speaking at this year’s NATO conference

Here’s a nice image from last year’s NATO conference. I will speak at this year’s conference in a panel with Maciej Surowiec, Director of Governmental Affairs at Microsoft, Tim Hwang, Director of Ethics and Governance of AI Initiative at Harvard / MIT among others. The former president of Estonia is also going to speak at this event. What an honor! Even though this will be a speaking opportunity, the conference has an amazing roster of speakers and I expect to learn a lot there. This year’s speaker list is available here the link below. It goes alphabetical order, so as usual, I am the last one. Can’t wait!

My talk in the European Political Strategy Centre

Just got back home from the wonderful conference on Election Interference in the Digital Age: Building Resilience to Cyber-Enabled Threats at the European Political Strategy Centre. The objective of my talk was to inform key political decision makers so they can make better decisions for us. I was delighted to see how many brilliant people are working on safeguarding our elections. Our decision makers are listening. Huge thanks to the organizers for the invitation and the amazing organization! If nothing else, you can read my short think piece here (p. 22) and witness my well-rehearsed (but not too stellar) tie folding skills below.


Just came back from SIGGRAPH 2018 and had an absolutely amazing time there. Thank you so much to many many of you who came to listen to the talk for this paper! Here is the very end:

Sponsoring CESCG

To give back more to the scientific community, Two Minute Papers recently sponsored CESCG 2018, a conference aimed to teach young scientists to write and present their papers at international venues. Btw, the man in the image is my advisor, Michael Wimmer.

We’re featured in the SIGGRAPH 2018 teaser video!

Our work is presented in the official SIGGRAPH 2018 Technical Papers Teaser video! This is as big of an honor as it gets. Thank you so much! It appears around the 40-second mark.


One day, two cakes. Mmm! I am totally spoiled. 🙂

An exclusive look at a new Google AI paper

I usually don’t post Two Minute Papers episodes here, but this time it is different. This work is as fresh as it gets because this is the first time I have been given an exclusive look before the paper came out, and this means that this video and the paper itself were published at the same time. I hope you will enjoy it just as much as I did!

Note: this is credited in the acknowledgments section of the paper.
