SVAI is a social-center for the Bay Area’s AI scene. We are a not-for-profit group that values education, peer-connectivity, technology exploration, equal representation and creating access to resources and opportunities. We have a special focus on supporting young up-and-coming leaders and growing with them as a community. Our gatherings often focus on computational biology, computational chemistry and artificial intelligence in genomics and individualized medicine. We offer 50% of our total event attendance for free. The other 50% of paid tickets helps support our ongoing activities. SVAI is pursing several un-announced projects to serve specific interests in the AI community.
