Join us at the 2nd International Workshop on Opentech AI in HelsinkiPlease join us in Helsinki on May 6-7 at IBM Office Helsinki (Laajalahdentie 23, 00330 Helsinki) for a workshop on artificial intelligence. Working with Daniel Pakkala and Jim Spohrer, we will share information about open source, AI ethics, and deep learning. Other topics include AI trends, AI frameworks like TensorFlow, natural language processing, AI in the context of healthcare and in energy & utilities industries. The event will be of interest to a variety of participants such as developers (particularly the tutorials), and for those defining the strategy for AI in their companies. Students, faculty and startups who participate, will be able to connect with companies, and showcase their work, e.g., through posters.
The Helsinki event will be relevant to digital transformation of economies via opentech AI. Specifically, the workshop will look at AI for Healthcare and Manufacturing as well as other industry-specific applications of AI, and Finland’s AI Strategy focus. The two day flow:
