Pressure can burst a pipe or it can make a diamond.
While the world is experiencing a pandemic and we are restricted to virtual meetings, no travel, no school, shortage of antibacterial soaps, an oil war, a presidential election, and an economy in shambles – this is where we as a community can come together to accelerate innovation.
2020 will mark the year when new policies, technologies, and cultural norms will be developed to advance our modern civilization. Limited resources and confined restraints will only make us more resilient and mindful in our daily lives.
AI LA is in early-stages of developing a Decentralized Research Institute (DRI) in order to connect data analytic nodes across the Greater Los Angeles area to securely collaborate on projects that can benefit humanity.
This program will allow you to contribute remotely to data projects managed on the edge to solve challenges in sustainability and the life sciences.
We are piloting this initiative in Los Angeles, by working closely with the city and county to identify problems, stakeholders, and data sets to design “data challenges” that will benefit Los Angeles, with the potential for global impact.
Our “data challenges” will be similar to a hackathon, but with an emphasis on large and diverse data sets (“big data”) and the use of AI / machine learning techniques to solve problems that have previously been intractable using traditional analysis methods.
If you are a data engineer or scientist and would like to participate in our upcoming pilot program.
Stay healthy my friend!
