Join the Gorge Technology Alliance to hear from TEDx speaker Charles Jennings on the state of Artificial Intelligence (AI) today and what it means for your business. While the focus will be on tech businesses, the event will have useful information for other Gorge business managers. AI is not some imagined killer robot threat but a game changer bigger than the internet – already disrupting businesses around the world. Hear what is happening and how it will affect your business. Charles Jennings is former CEO of the Caltech AI company and author of Artificial Intelligence: Rise of the Lightspeed Learners (Rowman & Littlefield; 2019). He has also published an op-ed piece on AI in the Los Angeles Times and given a popular TEDx talk “From Armadillos to Monkeys.” The event includes networking, time for questions and delicious appetizers. Cost for non-GTA members is $10. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., with the presentation starting around 7:00 p.m.
