There is a massive amount of hype that surrounds AI. How much is fact, how much is fiction?
This event is to decipher the status of AI technology currently by providing a group of AI experts to present and chat on the subject. The event will begin with two introduction presentations, one by Azeem Azhar on “Why the Boom Now?” and the second by Christoph Auer-Welsbach on IBM Watson and City.ai. Following, a panel discussion moderated by Tak Lo will ensue on “The Status of AI in Asia Today” with Sinuhe Arroyo, Jason Chiu, and Jeffrey Broer. All six speakers will share insights into AI from perspective of their six ventures: Exponential View, IBM Watson & City.ai, Taiger, Cherrypicks, Kophy Ventures, and Zeroth.ai.
