2018 AI Download
Learn more about AI from the perspectives of engineers, researchers, scientists, startup founders and many others. Intended to be a broad survey of AI activity happening across the Bay Area, this event will highlight academic research, learning resources, community initiatives and compelling work happening at the Valley’s leading AI companies.
The program features two sessions. In the first session, presenters will give a short overview of their artificial intelligence and machine learning projects. In the second session, speakers will provide a more technical view of their work.
Following the two sessions, audience members and presenters will have an opportunity to connect and share what they need to continue and expand their work.
Friday Nights @CHM
Friday Nights @CHM is offering you a whole new way to experience the Computer History Museum. CHM is now open after hours, from 5 to 9 p.m. We’re featuring patio festivities at our Cloud Bistro beer garden and special live programming on select Fridays for visitors of all ages.
Friday Night programming explores a wide range of subjects and mixes history with the present via documentary screenings, audience Q&As, short informal presentations from scientists and researchers and interactive evenings where audiences can get their hands on artifacts. We have covered topics from the history of graphic design to Africa’s growing tech community to the rise and fall of Atari and much more. In 2018, look for unexpected, exciting, and unusual events on Friday Nights @CHM.
