AIcebreaker 2018 – IE AI Club

Written on October 26, 2018 by Campus Life in Professional

The IE AI Club kicked off the 2018-2019 academic year, on October 24th, with a great AIcebreaker event, following on the steps of the previous successful year. 70+ people registered to the event, with the attendees being a mix from the IMBA, MIM and MBD programmes, as well as other friends of IE. For some event photos, click here.

The main purpose of the AIcebreaker event this year, was to give everyone an introduction to Artificial Intelligence technologies, have a discussion around ethical questions coming up in the field, not only from a technical perspective, but also on how AI advances impact business and our daily lives. This was amazingly facilitated by Professor Jaume Manero, a practitioner in the field of Artificial Intelligence, and a professor here at IE Business School. Professor Jaume brought in a very informative and engaging presentation on AI and deep learning, which sparked interesting discussions with the members. During the event we also had a little Kahoot guessing game with the winner grabbing a bottle of white wine as a prize. The lucky winner was the fastest of all, and with the highest score. The game was hosted by Betty Yunlei Lu and Yadu Brian Yang, the Club’s founding partners, and was an icebreaker for everyone to get involved.

Participants were also given a take-home game with a crossword specially prepared for AI, and made by the Club’s coordinators. The correct answers for it, will be available in our very own Instagram account ieaiclub.

We would also like to mention this year’s new coordinators Sabrina Mirtcheva, Vikas Agrawal, Sandeep Parihar, Gonzalo Ybanez and Miltos Stella.

We hope that you loved the event, and it got you interested in AI, as much as we are. Stay tuned for our next event. We’ll share the event details with you very soon!
