MindshareLA PresentS

AI & The Rise of the Machine Mind

May 4th, 7pm-1am at Cross Campus santa monica


AI technologies are already helping humanity discover exoplanets, assisting doctors to detect disease with unparalleled speed and accuracy, and debating human opponents with unprecedented skill. While this is happening, AI is also making jobs irrelevant, creating ethical conundrums on the battlefield, and provoking questions about the very nature and value of work. Ready or not, the age of Artificial Intelligence is upon us.

Join the MindshareLA community for an eclectic evening featuring talks by visionary pioneers exploring the world of AI and machine learning. In addition to the talks there will be the usual well-stocked bar, delicious food, delightful performances, and marvelous magic for which MindshareLA is known.

There will be a full bar, light snacks as well as veggie and non-veggie plates available.
