What we're about

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning have seized Tech mindshare in a way few topics have in recent memory. These technologies are having a huge impact on our lives, and their roles are only increasing. SFAI is a community group for developers interested in AI talks, discussions, and hack sessions.

Use cases and application of ML & AI in Software Engineering

From QA, release management, maintenance to cybersecurity, AI has applications for every engineering problem. In our February Meetup, we will discuss interesting use cases and applications of machine learning in what we have thought of as traditional software development. We'll learn from the real-world experiences of software engineers working with data scientists to build products that leverage machine learning into their platforms. We will start with pizza + networking at 6p, panel discussion at 6.30p, followed by audience Q&A at 7.30p and close at 8p. Meet our expert panel: Lei Pan, Solutions Architect at Databricks and Suzanne Yuen, Director of Data Science at Salesforce.org. This discussion will be moderated by Mia Dand, the organizer of SF AI meetup and CEO of Lighthouse3. Lei Pan recently joined Databricks as solutions architect because she believes together we can help democratize AI to make the world better. After getting her Master's in computer science and MBA, Lei Pan worked as a software engineer for couple years for big corporations. She has contributed to payments and machine learning projects at Capital One. She participated in 2 anti-fraud machine learning competitions and won one of them. Her AI product ideas was ranked as top 2 out of 70 ideas at Startup Weekend. Suzanne Yuen is the Director of Data Science at Salesforce.org. She has been a data practitioner for nearly a decade at various companies including VISA, Walt Disney, Williams Sonoma, and a smaller startup. She founded WomenforData.org, which focuses on getting more women into the professional data space. She focuses on how to help nonprofits and educational institutes level up with AI, Machine Learning, and other Data Science practices. Mia Dand is an AI & Emerging Tech leader and passionate Diversity in Tech advocate with 10+ years of experience in helping Fortune 5000 companies innovate responsibly with new technologies. She is author of the definitive guide, 100 Brilliant Women in AI Ethics, the organizer for SF AI Tech, SF AI & Emerging Tech, and East Bay AI & Emerging Tech meetups. She is also the host for monthly #AIEthics chat on Twitter and AI & Emerging Tech group on Facebook. ---- Big thanks to our generous sponsors: Food & Drinks: QCon.ai, a machine learning software conference designed for software engineers. This is not another machine learning conference for machine learning experts. It's designed for the SWE (software engineer). It's about machine learning and AI use cases helping software engineers remove friction in writing code. More information on the conference at https://qcon.ai/ Venue: Tribe CoLiving, a vibrant community co-living space for people that are looking for more than just housing. The team at Tribe CoLiving are very intentional about the communities they aim to create within our homes and understand that community starts with their amazing members.
