The Global AI awakening & A notorious AI launch party
We start with the best article of the week: the great AI awakening. Read how machine learning is destined to reinvent computing itself. But how do machines actually learn? Data. And there’s a shortage of that. Thought AI is al serious? Learn how an AI launch party got completely out of hand.
Seriously. We found strategies for startups to get data. We address financial prediction using AI. Spoiler: not just numbers, AI can now predict movie scenes. Can you build AI systems with coders you never met?
Local news: What’s going on around the globe? We have 3 events coming in January 2017, including Berlin, Stockholm and the newest city to join our network: Sofia.
We regret not having attended any notorious AI parties lately.
Sofia AI is taking place. According to Elitsa Panayotova, CEO of Sofia Tech Park, Sofia has been in a leading position for developing the startup ecosystem in South Eastern Europe for the last 2-3 years. Sofia AI has been made possible by the combined efforts of local market experts, Evelin Velev, George Stoyanov, and Pavlina Desheva, with the support of Hacker.Works.
We at City have awoken. Given the launch story, is there a hype that is getting out of hand? We leave that to you. We pointed out the problem of data, how to acquire it, economics and AI spoiler alerts.
