Our second Singapore City AI meetup will be held on May 4 at 17:00!

Due to the overwhelming interest and feedback received from our first meetup, we have decided to structure the event around Chatbots. The event format will be a panel discussion followed by open Q&A. The panel will feature key Singapore practitioners, investors, and media representatives discussing what’s hot and what’s not, what’s hype and what’s genuine opportunity, and how do you know that a chatbot is actually creating business value. We will explore opportunities, use cases, success stories, flukes, limitations and value models for conversational AI interfaces.

It’s shaping up to be a great event, so join us and take part of the conversation!
