AITX Sep ‘23: Events, Jobs, and News Deep in the Heart of Texas 🤖🚀
AITX Team here. We’re excited to share our first AITX update. Folks at the Monthly Meetup have been asking how to engage with the community, so we’re putting this together to share upcoming events, opportunities, and news on AI in Austin.
If you’re new here, welcome! 👋 At AITX, we aim to:
Connect you with like-minded peers passionate about AI
Provide a space for sharing ideas and receiving feedback on AI projects you’re building
Share helpful tools and invaluable resources
This month’s newsletter contains 4 upcoming ATX AI Events, 5 open ATX-based AI job opportunities, and 8 updates on the ATX AI scene.
Read on for more, but to start, here are the top 3 ways you can plug in to the local AI Community this month:
Sign up for the World Generative AI Summit and MLOps Summit (use code AITX25 for $25 off!)
Host an AITX Community Event! This is a new initiative we are testing to help AITX members host smaller more focused events around specific topics within AI like prompt engineering, LangChain, vector databases vs fine-tuning, etc.
Great turnout at the August meetup!
Thank you to the nearly 100 folks who came out to our August AITX event! Last month’s turnout was significant enough that we’ve been upgraded to Capital Factory’s main event space on the 1st floor, Voltron, moving forward - woohoo!
We’ll be hosting demos again at the September meetup, if you’d like to present just respond to this email and share a summary of your project and how the group can help (your ask).
