You are guaranteed to walk away with a wider view of the space, trends that are currently in development, and how we can collectively mobilize to responsibly adopt these powerful technologies.

The Women in AI Forum is a 1 day virtual event showcasing the contributions of women in AI + tech from around the world, providing positive role models and meaningful discussions. This event is an effort to provide the public with ideas around how AI is impacting organizations of all sizes, why it is important to understand AI, and how AI can be adopted / leveraged properly.
