Event Description

GradShares Series Overview: GradShares is a research communication and networking series developed through collaboration between Princeton Area Alumni Association (PA3), Association of Princeton Graduate Alumni and GradFUTURES initiative in Princeton’s Graduate School. Through GradShares, Princeton Graduate Students communicate their research and connect with Princeton alums


The primary goal of the series are:

  • enhance engagement and connections between local alums (both graduate and undergraduate) and current graduate students.
  • provide graduate students opportunities to communicate their research in accessible ways and receive feedback
  • expand avenues for local alumni to stay connected with research in Princeton


Sayash Kapoor, GS CS and CITP will serve as the first speaker of GradShares and discuss AI and surrounding hype. 

Session Description: What makes AI work? What makes it fail? And how to tell the difference? In this talk, we'll dive deep into the opportunities, challenges and false promises of AI.

A networking reception will follow the talk.
