Education @ World Summit AI

We have attended the World Summit AI which is currently the world’s leading and most important summit for the entire AI ecosystem from Enterprise to Big TechStartupsInvestorsand Science.

The event presented talks from our colleagues Yoshua Bengio who has a portfolio of talks on our case study VideoLectures.Net, applied solutions for enterprise, to mind-boggling innovation, to heated discussions on AI ethics and AI4good.

A major underlying component of the World Summit AI was education, however not directly addressed by anyone in the room, the sustainability of machine learning experts is not defined at this point – we suggest to tackle it in 2019 and beyond with OER.
