AI Club 2018 Recap

Written on December 12, 2018 by Campus Life in Professional

The AI Club celebrates it’s first birthday! It’s been a productive year and we had the honor to host inspiring speakers. Here’s a recap of 2018:

We started the year discussing about the role of AI in the gaming industry. Attendees had a first hand experience with Xbox One X, an AI enabled video game. 

On March 2018, we hosted a workshop on Watson Analytics together with the IE USA Club. Luis Reina, Big Data Architect at IBM Watson explained us how is Natural Language Understanding applied to Watson, followed by a debate about applications in other industries.
We also had a former alumni as a speaker at the event “From MiM to AWS: What does AI means to Amazon?”. Alessandro Favia shared some valuable insights about how AWS disrupted the data storing business, and how is it to work there. 

After the Club Fair and an AIcebreaker to welcome new club members, we co-hosted James Murray, the co-founder of OffWorld, together with the Technology & Innovation, Air & Space and Energy Clubs. James showcased us how deep learning is helping OffWorld’s robots to be ready to perform tasks in other planets, such as mining and construction.

Finally, the AI club participated in the event “How to Organize Product Management around AI Initiatives”, with guest speaker Aarthi Srinivasan, Director of Product Management at Target. With over 70 attendees, Mr. Srinivasan gave valuable insights about how to successfully incorporate AI in a company.

We’re proud for all the 2018 events. A big thank you to everyone who attended and supported the AI Club events this year. Looking forward for 2019!
