What is AI and why does it need you?

Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to reshape virtually every industry, the workforce and, ultimately, the entire economy. The rapid evolution of AI brings new buzzwords – machine learning, deep learning, neural networks – and many questions about how best to understand and implement these new technologies.

This half-day workshop is designed to provide you with an introduction to artificial intelligence – its terms, tools and solutions – and the importance of women and underrepresented groups being included in this new era of big data and machine learning.

Bethany Edmunds, Director of Computer Science at Northeastern University’s Vancouver Campus will help you understand what AI is and the potential it offers while examining the unique challenges and opportunities it brings. You'll also gain a better understanding of the importance of having members of diverse backgrounds shape AI strategies and solutions to ensure a more inclusive future for all of us.
