What will we be talking about?

In one sentence: how AI can be used for real-world problems.

The thinking in AI has changed from ‘What’s possible?’ to ‘How do I do this?

During our session, we will be taking a closer look at some of the ways artificial intelligence and machine learning are being used to solve real-world problems, to improve society and also make people’s lives better. Join us on September 3rd in Melbourne at the Goods Shed North, 710 Collins Street.
