AIcebreaker

Written on November 13, 2017 by Campus Life in Professional

On November 8th, 2017, IE AI Club hosted first event in 2017-2018 academic year. 90 plus people registered to the event, with more than half of the attendees from IMBA program, many others from MIM and MBD programs. For event photos, click here.

The main purpose of AIcebreaker was to give the introduction to Artificial Intelligence technologies and ongoing researches not only from technical side, but also from business perspective.

During the event we had two games with prizes. The fastest teams received small sweet prizes, and we hope that after the event you fell in love with AI as everyone loves wine and sweets.

The first Kahoot game, perfectly hosted by Yuchen and Sanjay, was more icebreaker to get everyone involved. The winner with highest score received a bottle of rose wine.

Then the second game was the AI crossword specially made by AI Club coordinators with terms mentioned in a 10-minute presentation on “Introduction to AI” given by our VP of Technology Yadu Brian Yang. Brian used to work as an Investment Manager at Silicon Valley VC Plug and Play, and has established a strong network in the AI industry. We welcome you to contact him if you are interested in working in the AI industry.

Our next event will be in the end of November / beginning of December, and we can’t wait to share with you event details! Stay tuned and love AI!
