Athena's Technology Special Interest Group (TSIG) Committee |
Taking Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) from Concept to Application

Last year the TSIG committee presented an introductory program with expert panelists who shared their thoughts on utilizing Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning practices to solve unmet customer needs. This year we continue the exploration of these exciting fields by examining some real-world applications.
Join us for four lightning talks with San Diego’s top AI/ML technologists sharing how they use AI and ML to build applications. It promises to be an intriguing and interactive evening as our experts share details about the resources they used to get started and the skills needed for a career in Artificial Intelligence or Machine Learning.
After the lightning talks, stick around for a Q&A session with the panelists.
