Founding principles

Promote diversity and inclusion: AI is revolutionizing several fields, from computer vision to autonomous driving and robotics. Its potential to radically change our society calls for this technology to be mastered and shaped by everyone, with equal representation of genders, ethnicities, nationalities, religions and economic backgrounds.

Boost networking and knowledge transfer: M2L brings together early-stage researchers, practitioners and world-leading experts, providing access to high quality education, and strengthening the local and foreign machine learning ecosystem by fostering durable connections among researchers, as well as among practitioners and industry.

Support dialogue and collaboration: the school aims to promote an informed dialogue among companies, academia and institutions, encouraging them to take an active role in shaping, regulating and supporting the evolution of the artificial intelligence field, as well as to facilitate the exchange of ideas and the establishment of partnerships.
