You're invited to the TECHFLUENCE: Portland - May Meetup with presentations from:
• Grant Thomas & Max Folley (Creative Technology Leads, W+K)
'AI: Actually Still Terrible'
We’ll beat up the theory that we’re all going to die from robots. This talk is about “useless” things that are being made with AI, genuine advancements, how to design for AI that is still terrible and where the apocalypse is really at.
• Jerry Michalski (Strategy Director, Ziba Design & Founder of REX)
'AI is a two-edged sword'
Since the earliest computers, we’ve been trying to emulate human thinking — and maybe replace it. The road has been twisty, but we’ve recently created a few hills that make machine intelligence powerful, useful and hard to avoid.
• Toby Roberts (President/COO, Happy Finish)
'Mimicry and intelligence- Creative applications of AI'
A case study exploring the current and potential capabilities of AI, as a tool for creative expression and content generation.
• Moderated by Todd Greco (Interaction Design Director, Ziba)
Join us as we dive into the conversation and become informed, educated, and inspired by the state of Artificial Intelligence.
Doors at 5:30pm, show starts promptly at 6pm. Pizza & drinks to follow.
