Huntsville AI Goes to College

February 11, 2020

The Huntsville AI group gave a presentation on AI/ML at the University of Alambama Huntsville ACM chapter meetup. Here are the notes from the meeting:

Huntsville AI Goes to College

Welcome to Huntsville AI!

Brief Intro

What we do at Huntsville AI:

  • Application – how to solve a problem with a technology
  • Theory – for those times when knowing “How” something works is necessary
  • Social / Ethics – Human / AI interaction
  • Brainstorming – new uses for existing solutions
  • Hands on Code – for those times when you just have to run something for yourself
  • Coworking Night – maybe have combined sessions with other groups to discuss application in their focus areas
  • Community – get to know others in the field. Provide talks like this one and support local tech events (HATCH, SpaceApps)
