We are a group of startup engineers, research scientists, computational linguists, mathematicians, philosophers, and others interested in understanding the meaning of text, reasoning, and human intent through technology. We want to apply our understanding to building new businesses and improving overall human experience in the modern connected world. The MIND Stack explained: mind.wtf.
This is a technical AI meetup: we build systems with Machine Learning on top of Data Pipelines, and concern ourselves with the stuff we can try in open source, learn, improve, and model human behavior in industry for practical results.
The advisory board for this meetup is Cicero Institute (Cicero.ai), and its conferences are AI.vision and self.driving.cars. We like specific technical problems (self-driving cars) and the way they inform better higher-level inference of the future of AI (AI.vision).
Open-Source Program Office (OSPO) at UC Santa Cruz, Open-Source Science Initiative at NumFOCUS (https://oprnsource.science) and IBM Research invite you to a meetup at the UCSC legendary Cowell Ranch Hay Barn (https://cowellhaybarn.ucsc.edu), diving onto OSS for Science!
Please register on Eventbrite for in-person access. OSSci t-shirts and great food/drinks will be on offer!
Core panel themes will include the way AI will accelerate and disrupt science. Panelists include OSS veterans, faculty and startup founders as well as scientific OSS community managers experienced in all aspects of OSS applications.
