SpaceportX and Octavia.ai
The inaugural Manchester Machine Learning & Pizza Evening!
When: 8th November 2016 at SpaceportX
We are super excited to present an evening of great talks from local Manchester based companies working in the field of Machine Learning and AI.
If you are working with ML/AI, interested in the field or just plain hungry come down for an evening of Pizza, Beer and Amazing Speakers!
The world is changing at an unprecented pace. From self-driving cars to virtual home assistants to world-champion Go and chess players, software is eating the world. Boys and girls born today will find it archaic and bizarre that people ever drove cars, flew planes, performed surgery or went to shops to buys goods or schools to get an education. Machine Learning and AI, the driving forces behind this revolution, are not local phenomenons restricted to Palo Alto or Tel Aviv. In fact it can happen anywhere, and it is happening here as well - in Manchester.
To showcase and celebrate some of the exciting things happening in Manchester we are hosting an evening of speakers from local companies in the field. We hope this can inspire even more people to become involved in Machine Learning and AI and give people already involved a chance to learn more about other applications and meet fellow like-minded folks.
