AI for Good Hackathon Opening Night with Special Guests
Excited to join the organizing team and contribute to this wonderful hackathon, where we’ll be hacking at the point of convergence of AI and social good. I will be giving a talk at the Opening Night Mixer at Galvanize on this theme as well as mentoring during the two day “hack.” Impeccable timing-my entire 8 hour class this weekend -both Saturday and Sunday – is focused entirely on AI.
