WaiTALK "A tale of two countries: the ai version"


At the first Brisbane WaiTALK, learn what Canada and China can teach us about AI across technology, approaches, opportunities and diversity. A Tale of Two Countries: The AI Edition

Having returned from a whirlwind journey into the heart of AI research and development at the world-renowned Montreal Institute of Learning Algorithms (MILA), followed by HAX, one of China’s top high-tech, fast-paced hardware accelerators, Becks is excited to share with you the lessons and experiences of both these two heavily AI-focused countries.

Get ready for an exciting, engaging and enlightening night delving into life at these two institutions and the AI ecosystem of each country in general across technology, approaches, opportunities and diversity.

On this special evening, we are excited to invite the Brisbane tech community to join us for dinner and drinks to celebrate the launch of the Brisbane Chapter of Women In AI (WAI).
