Thursday, April 19, 2018 - 2:15 - 3:00 pm

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML) is one of the most exciting and transformative opportunities today. The rise in AI/ML investments are creating significant momentum for angel investors to jump in — or risk not having a seat at the table. However, the hype about AI/ML makes it difficult for experienced investors to understand where the real value and innovation are. This interactive “fireside chat” will help investors better understand the opportunities, risks and potential returns from visionaries on both the investor and practitioner sides.
