KL AI Meetup #12 - Season Recap

Description

We're getting towards the end of this season's session of meetups. Special shoutout to AJ for being present for multiple weeks. He's a new fan of Daniel Suarez's writings as well.

Warm thanks to IBM and Intel for dropping by this season for a show of industry support. While we normally have startups, students and curious folks - it's been great to have industry leaders who are right at the forefront of building the chips, software and services dropping by to map out the local community interest and offering assistance.

In this season recap, we'll cover the things that has emerged over the recent weeks. Acquisitions and investments continues to be made (with the major news being Google's acquisition of Kaggle and Intel's acquisition of Mobileye).

We'll have a break in the regular weekly meetups to allow time for diving into development, reading and sharing our concerns on the rise of silicon as artificial general intelligence takes root with Deep Mind spinning out more press stories about things that you just wouldn't believe that it's up to these days!

While the group has grown from its humble origins of a few dozen curious folks, we're now almost 400 strong with many realising that programming is a hard hurdle to get over.

Come chat and ask questions on how to start. How to digest this list of links of things that we've been discussing - https://www.meetup.com/Kuala-Lumpur-Artificial-Intelligence-Meetup/messages/boards/thread/50179414

The confidence that we seek to navigate the near automated intelligence world requires hard work. Or you could buy into the ignorance while not realising how lucky you are being alive to witness this transition that took 12,000+ years of civilisation to achieve and 2.75 billion years of evolution to arrive at.
