City AI - Synthetic Intelligence and optimism for 2017
By City AI • Issue #10 • View online
It’s been a rather “fresh” start for 2017…
I’m talking about the weather in Central Europe. When it comes to AI, it’s been raining optimistic predictions. Will 2017 be the year in which we’ll see intelligent robots?  This week we offer a personal interview with Peter Norvig of Google, in Forbes. Talking Google, we present DeepMind’s work of 2016 in a round-up. The 3 machine learning articles ranging from new techniques to a complete business guide and programming languages are seriously worth reading. With AI around the globe, we present you the UK AI startup scene, news from Germany’s Chatbot conference and the European perspective on these developments.
We have more and more cities joining our community and upcoming events  - so be sure to check the announcements!
Enjoy the read
