Fusemachines is a company that originated from the research of founder & CEO Dr. Sameer Maskey, a professor at Columbia University, with a mission to put AI in everyone’s hands through education, software & services. Since its inception in 2011, the company has successfully provided its products and services to a myriad of industries.
The same company, Fusemachines, together with Artificial Intelligence for Development (AID) has announced the launch of the biggest AI Expo in Nepal – AI Expo 2019. This expo will take place on 24th August at Soaltee Crowne Plaza, Kathmandu.
AI Expo 2019
The AI Expo 2019 aims to serve the vision of providing students, enthusiasts, and professionals with free training and hands-on experiences on applied AI. They will also get mentorship from experts, a platform to create AI products, win different prizes, and explore other benefits.
Fusemachines has been investing its efforts for the democratization of AI creating different opportunities for youth to learn AI and have their ideas and innovation nurtured, developed and recognized.
Likewise, Artificial Intelligence for Development (AID) as a research and development organization has been focusing on bringing applied Artificial Intelligence solutions to existing community problems, delivering a positive impact on society.
Free training and hands-on exercises on applied AI will take place before the AI Expo. The participants will learn in detail about AI and its contemporary advancements and usages. Together with this, they will also collaborate with fellow students, AI experts, professionals, and domain experts alike to build some viable technological prototypes. (In simple words, you will be trained in AI and hopefully, by the end of the training, you’ll become competent enough to create a demo)
Sameer Maskey, founder and CEO of Fusemachines said, ‘Events like AI Expo 2019 will encourage participants to understand AI, and help them network and collaborate with each other to build AI-powered prototypes. Students demonstrating their innovations through a national exhibition like AI Expo would help to address the prevalent problems that exist in the social as well as the national level and leverage AI for communal development.
If you have an interest in leveraging the force of AI or have a cool idea that uses AI and that could help the society, I think you should be a part of this Expo.
