What we're about

The Rocky Mountain AI Interest Group (RMAIIG) is a community of non-technical, but passionate and enthusiastic individuals who are fascinated by the recent advancements in generative AI tools. This group is focused on exploring and discussing the latest developments in AI, particularly tools like ChatGPT, DALL-E, Midjourney, Microsoft’s Bing with Chat, and Google’s Bard. We will also look at the impact of these tools on business, education, workplace, law, entrepreneurship and society in general.

The group is designed to be inclusive and welcoming to all individuals who have an interest in AI and its applications. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, RMAIIG aims to provide a platform for learning, sharing ideas, and collaborating with like-minded people.

Our events will host speakers who are experts in some aspect of AI and able to communicate with a broad audience of non-technical users. You will be able to stay ahead of the curve on fast-moving developments in the field and get your questions answered.

Tues, June 13th: "The Near Future of AI," 6 PM MDT, In-Person ONLY, CU Boulder

The Rocky Mountain AI Interest Group (RMAIIG) will host an IN-PERSON
ONLY meeting on Tuesday, June 13th at 6 PM MDT in Boulder called “The
Near Future of AI." This presentation will offer insights into the
powerful capabilities that AI is predicted to acquire in the next 6 to 12 months, and how these advancements may influence vital areas such as productivity, job displacement, and AI quality. Please join us on Tuesday, June 13th at 6 pm at the ATLAS building (Room 100), located on CU Boulder’s campus. Capacity is about 150 attendees. [masked]th St, Boulder, CO 80309

Thanks to the generosity of Karl Dakin and Entrepreneur Pro, we now have a Pizza Sponsor! Thanks, Karl, for being our Pie-lanthropist! Entrepreneur Pro is the producer of the Entrepreneur Coach - an AI avatar on entrepreneurship, the Motivated Money Podcast - a weekly presentation of raising money by entrepreneurs and the Motivated Money Bootcamp.

Our distinguished speaker, Dr. Josiah Seaman, a data scientist from
the biotech industry, will lead the discussion. With a PhD in
Bioinformatics and a passion for technology, Josiah has actively
followed advancements in AI/Machine Learning, aerospace engineering,
and sustainable energy.

He's currently working full time on launching his own startup called
Creative Contours, which aims to modernize copyright law by enabling
artists to claim, quantify, and monetize contributions to AI-generated
art. Josiah has been an active member of RMAIIG, both pitching his
startup at "Chat Tank" as well as speaking at multiple "Afterparty"
events where he has been decoding complicated technical topics for our
broad audience.

Key Emerging AI Features we will explore:

1. Text + Audio + Images + Video + Robotics

We'll discuss the huge potential of multimodal models, which enable AI
systems to not only process text but also perceive and generate
images, engage in conversations, produce sounds, and respond to audio.
Explore the implications of this technology on various domains and its
impact on human-machine interactions.

2. Can AI actually generate its own training data? If so, how??

Unveil the concept of amplification, a process where AI systems can
generate vast amounts of high-quality training data, surpassing the
existing human-generated content. However, with this amplification
comes the challenge of biases and potential errors being magnified.
Gain insights into the implications of AI-generated content surpassing
human-produced content on a global scale.

3. How does AI improve itself? Should this concern us?

Learn about the powerful process of distillation, wherein neural
networks can autonomously improve beyond human capabilities. Combined
with energy-saving techniques, this approach allows for achieving
higher quality outcomes with reduced energy consumption. Explore the
potential applications and implications of this self-improvement

4. AI self talk (no humans needed!)

Discover how AI systems can enhance their intelligence through
self-critique, without any human intervention. Gain valuable insights
into Auto GPT and SmartGPT, which showcase the effectiveness of AI
self-evaluation in driving intelligence improvement.

We may also be adding an AI Futurist as a second speaker.

Don't miss this opportunity to gain insights into the exciting future
of AI and its potential to reshape our world. Reserve your spot at
“The Future of AI" today!

We're super-stoked to see you all in person!! (We're also hoping to
have a ChatGPT-enabled "guest" who will be speaking to us before and
after the meeting.)
