Creating AI-first applications

CIC Boston - Anchor Space, besides Render Coffee

Welcome to the fifth meetup of AI & Design! This meetup will be in the Anchor Room of CIC - Boston, 50 Milk St. This room is beside Render Coffee on the first floor. ---------------------------------- SCHEDULE 6.30 - 7.00pm: Welcome and networking 7.00 - 8.30pm: Presentation 8.30 - 9.00pm: Discussion and networking ---------------------------------- TITLE Creating AI-first applications DESCRIPTION Artificial Intelligence has transitioned from a moonshot idea to accessible technology. As a result, the way we design, build, and market technology products is playing catch-up. To deliver the best experiences we must create AI-first applications, in the same way that we transitioned to create mobile-first applications. In this talk, we will dive into three frontiers of AI-first applications: Computer Vision; Natural Language Processing; and Ambient Computing. Computer Vision will explore the possibilities enabled when cameras are combined with AI, and the unlikely side effects of training computers to “see.” Natural Language Processing will examine the rise of AI assistants from tech heavyweight companies and the ins-and-outs of voice input and and voice synthesis. Finally, Ambient Computing will unveil how invisible background AI learns from the world around us and makes our lives better. AI-first is not an easy goal to accomplish. Accordingly, throughout the talk we will address the technology and data challenges that underpin working with AI technology. From data sources and training to deployment and inference, we will begin to understand the special considerations of AI-first and how to overcome them. SPEAKER Dan Abdinoor is CTO and Cofounder of Fritz, where he leads the team creating edge-computing AI technology. Dan has been a longtime pillar of the tech startup community, leading successful teams at HubSpot (IPO), BabbaCo (acquired 2013), Wyth (acquired 2014), and Jana Mobile. In addition to his dedicated work, Dan has mentored dozens of companies at the Boston-area arm of the startup accelerator program, TechStars, serving since 2014. ---------------------------------- IN-KIND SPONSORS We are pleased to have CIC - Boston as an in-kind sponsor of our event.
