What we're about

AI LA is a community of today's most curious minds focused on tomorrow’s most challenging problems. We explore the impacts artificial intelligence, machine learning, and other emerging technologies will have on humanity. We acknowledge that AI is influenced by both art and science, and that human concerns outweigh technological ones.

We host monthly events every Third Thursday to debate and discuss AI alignments, capabilities, and design strategy, so we can consistently bring people together to discuss the latest research in AI.

Want to help out or showcase one of your projects? We want to hear from you!

The New Normal: Data-Driven: An approach for reimagining institutions

"Data-Driven: An approach for reimagining institutions" by Marie Smith Imagine a world where the decisions don't just get made on gut instinct, but also or alternatively get made on public data.

What types of American and global public and private institutions can we reimagine?

The New Normal: Unlocking human potential with artificial intelligence

"Wellbeing Tech and AI: Unlocking human potential with artificial intelligence" by Nichol Bradford Wellbeing is the essential tool for the future of health, work and human excellence. Without widespread wellbeing, we face a world of stress, anxiety, despair, tribalism, bad teams, low innovation, toxic companies, broken communities, low cognition and emotional regulation and even limited humanity. Wellbeing properly leveraged through technology transforms education, productivity, preventative health, and the hard limits of what we think humans can do and be -- which will support equality and opportunity in new ways. While it may seem counterintuitive, this is actually the moment for the creators, catalyzers, investors and those of courage and good heart to leverage this shift and build the wellbeing tech that will change the course of human history.
