AIFest Open House is AI for everyone

AIFest is a deep dive into the world of AI, how AI can influence your startup, and what you need to think about as you design your systems. AIFest Open House is a more accessible look into the world of AI, and how AI affects us all.

We want to give you as much practical information about AI as possible. We’ll cover the most important topics surrounding AI, like healthcare, the future of work, bias, and AI for good. There will be interactive sessions where we’ll co-create around these important topics, giving you concrete, actionable steps you can take away. You’ll hear directly from the experts working in the field, and they’ll share their key learnings around the work they do. The speakers and content are carefully curated to give you the most valuable AI content.

Time Session Title Description
10:00 AM - 10:10 AM Welcome and recap What have we learned so far, welcome to the new arrivals
10:10AM - 10:30AM Unfortunately we are living in a biased world. As humans we have biased opinions and we tend to make biased decisions. So when we develop AI models and feed them data, we have to be careful that we are neither simply confirming existing biases nor introducing new ones. Examples of biais are already there in our world, so if we dont take significant actions, we are at the risk of constructing machine intelligence that mirrors a narrow and privileged vision of society, with its old, familiar biases and stereotypes. In this talk, Women in AI's Dr. Hanan Salam will present examples of bias that exist in AI applications. She will tackle the question of gender bias in AI and how we can assure a clean, inclusive representation of the world of AI. Unfortunately we are living in a biased world.

10:30PM - 10:50PM The Brilliant Future of AI and Healthcare AI is now in its third generation. The first two generations were premature and suffered from constraints of insufficient digital data substrates and computational power. Now that both of those constraints have disappeared, how do we leverage this exponential capability in EVERY aspect of healthcare delivery? Machine learning entrepreneurs are taking on every element of health, wellness, and disease with astonishing progress. While imaging is the simplest target with the earliest yields, I will describe how every step of the human life cycle, and every step of the healthcare delivery system lifecycle will be disrupted in the very near future and at scale. Amara’s Law states that visionaries tend to overestimate how quickly disruption will emerge, and underestimate the ultimate impact of new technologies. We are now well past the tipping point between hype and hyper-reality.
10:50AM - 11:10AM Terminator. The Matrix. Westworld. What do these have in common? We’re all familiar with the dystopian scenarios painted out in the pages of science fiction where humans fall prey to AI. But, how many of us are aware of the plethora of real-life uses of AI for Good and as a driver of positive societal change? This session will delve into the intersection of society and benevolent AI. We’ll discuss the many ways in which AI is already impacting education, healthcare, and the law, among other areas, today, including how Botler AI is using this transformative technology to empower the average citizen.
11:10AM - 11:40AM Conversational commerce Conversational Commerce is an opportunity to completely disrupt the way you interact with your customers. Using machine learning, natural language processing, and conversational analytics, this panel will introduce ways to engage your customers with chatbots, intelligent assistants, and virtual agents. Hear from experts that build these solutions on how you can take advantage of this new trend.
11:40AM - 12:00PM The future of work means business must keeps pace with a dynamic market Dave Gray, Author of The Connected Company says this: "Customers are adopting disruptive technologies faster than your company can you adapt." Business Transformation is an inevitability. The market has already moved on but business today is mired in complacency, legacy systems and archaic processes. In the meantime, information and intelligence technology are moving at a faster pace. The future organization is connected to the market in real-time. It enables decision-making at all levels of the organization that is increasingly precise and effective. The future organization creates a culture of incessant learning that allows its employees to collaborate and innovate and iterate to maintain market relevancy. It will create new roles and opportunities for those who choose to evolve in an age of constant disruption.
