On September 8, the 2020 Women in AI Summit, “Bringing All Minds Together,” will present a series of free, virtual webinars on artificial intelligence, covering each hour of the day. The global event, featuring several AIs, kicks off in Australia and Asia, then moves on to Africa, through Europe to the Americas.
Some 3,000+ attendees and more than 100 speakers from 40 countries who are passionate about the potential for women to lead the way toward a more equitable and diverse ecology of artificial intelligence are expected to participate in #WAISummit2020.
