Our 2017 Kickoff Event!
To start 2017, we're taking a broad look at what everyone is working on in the AI scene. We'll be highlighting new AI startups, research, learning resources and community initiatives in the SF Bay Area. Plus, we'll include updates from some past SVAI presenters. There's an enormous span of activity here, and we want you to know about it. This event, co-hosted with Comet Labs, is a great opportunity to connect with cool startups and lesser known projects. Each presenter will have a chance to give an introduction to their project, the status and how you can be involved.
