Jake Dorman
As a first year rep, I have had the chance to experience all aspects of the society: helping out in the events team, reaching out to organisations such as the Future of Humanities Institute to build up partnerships and find speakers for events, as well as administrative tasks too. Furthermore, I have past experience as a treasurer: I was the treasurer of my sixth form’s student council. Given this experience and my previous work within the society, I believe I am prepared to take on the role as treasurer of the AI society. My key priorities will be:
Partnerships: In previous years, our society had a formal partnership with Google. As treasurer, I intend to get us another formal partnership with another tech giant, to help us fund more large scale events. Furthermore, I intend to help create a network between AI societies across the globe, and collaborate on large scale, international events.
Consistency: This year the society has put on some fantastic events, which so many people missed out on due to varying turnout. As treasurer I will ensure that all events are all well promoted, well organised and accessible for all who would be interested in attending them.

Due to my involvement in the society's committee this year and the continuous amount of work made throughout this time, I believe I would be a great fit for this particular role and my priorities would definitely include most of the ones from this year, which contributed to making the society thrive in the midst of a global pandemic. During this year, I got to know most of my committee team mates and see all of their advantages. Therefore, by giving a voice to each of them coming from such diverse backgrounds, the society would have the chance to move forward with some amazing ideas for new events, tutorials and journal clubs. I would definitely continue with the AI/ML competitions between committee members to improve skills and have a little bit of fun between ourselves, but also expand the society's area of outreach in order to have a variety of mindsets from all around the world. Due to some unfortunate matters such as people not being able to attend events in person, I would make sure that, even though everything would come back to normal next year, students would have the possibility to attend most of our events remotely as well - recording sessions, sharing the tutorials' notebooks and so on. In my opinion, this is only the beginning of what this society could be and I would be pleased to contribute to its success and growth from this moment on.
Surabhi Luthra
As Head of Events of the Artificial Intelligence Society, the experience gained from working in both leadership and events forms an integral part of the role of a Treasurer. It requires commitment and dedication to ensure that the society can provide valuable resources, tutorials, events, projects and competitions for all.

This year, we’ve seen that despite the challenges of not being able to interact face-to-face, the passion and interest for AI at UCL has upheld the engagement in our content. The importance of maintaining this diverse community relies on the ambition and value of what the society can offer, which I hope to expand through existing and new collaborations and partnerships.

My current role in the committee has enabled me to form relationships with academic and industry experts from across the world whilst also building stronger foundations within the society. I aim to use these connections to make the society accessible to everyone as AI continues to extend to more interdisciplinary fields.

There is a plethora of opportunities that the AI society can provide, and as a Treasurer I will ensure that the finances and resources are not a limitation to the quality and access of these opportunities for you.
