📌 Theme
A few weeks ago, we started a monthly meetup series featuring AI in Tokyo. We are happy to keep our promise to make this a regular event. So, here is Episode 2.

AI has had amazing levels of publicity in recent years - for good and for bad. But how can you use these technologies for real business value? The goal of this monthly series is to zoom in on business perspectives and to take out the hype and the clutter. We shall focus on the implementation of AI in real businesses.
