Another Thank You Letter from Michael Chang for his Sumerschool Grant at Istituto Dalle Molle/Intelligenze Artificiale

Hi Patrizia,

I would like to send my gratitude to you and the ZKS Foundation for funding my research internship at  Istituto Dalle Molle di Studi sull’Intelligenza Artificiale with Professor Jürgen Schmidhuber. I learned very much and I had a lot of fun. My research has resulted in a publication at the International Conference on Learning Representations this year, and the publication is here: https://arxiv.org/abs/1802.10353.
This was an opportunity of a lifetime for me, and I am extremely grateful for your support in giving me this opportunity. I hope you are well, and thank you so much again!
Michael
Thank you Michael for your kind email and all the best for your academic and professional future!
Jacqueline
