My friend Assaf Araki from Intel invited me to give a hand organizing the Israeli AI Week. We are looking for talks from innovative companies and machine learning researchers.
The AI-Week in Tel Aviv is a nationwide community event organized by representatives from the Academia, Government, Industry and NGOs. AI week will bring together ~2000 AI researchers and practitioners from Israel and around the globe. The event will take place in Tel Aviv university campus during November 17th to November 20th and will include one day of hands on workshops, two conference days with +100 speakers, a two days of data hackathon and multiple additional events.
The goals of AI Week are to increase the synergy among the local AI eco system and with leading global innovators while exposing Israel AI innovation to the world. This event will include cutting edge sessions delivered by leading researchers and industry innovators from Israel and around the world.
The Israel AI week founding members include Tel Aviv University, Startup Nation Central, Israel Innovation Authority & Intel. We are adding more and more partners into this community effort.
