Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to our 3rd IBM PowerAI Meetup that will take place on 27 March from 6-8pm at In5 Tech Dubai Internet City. This is an extremely exciting moment for us as IBM PowerAI has now joined the Watson family as part of IBM’s One AI strategy. Hence, it will be our great opportunity to introduce you to the broader IBM Data Science & AI Portfolio and see how you can leverage the simplicity of Watson with the customization of the PowerAI to create industry-changing cognitive applications.

Come and see live AI demos built on IBM products for real-world applications, such as video surveillance. We’ll show you how IBM democratized AI to allow non-data scientists to build ML / DL models with few clicks. Then, since decisions made by machines have to be explained for many Enterprise use cases (e.g., credit risk), we’ll show you how we enable users to interpret models and explain every single decision. Finally, we’ll talk about the underlying hardware that’s enabling all this AI “magic” and how IBM has designed today’s world fastest supercomputer…
