What AI Startups are Solving Today

You're reading this because you care about what AI is unleashing across everything, your work, your sanity and you future.

Over the past few meetups, we've had the pleasure of folks from Maybank, Bank Negara Malaysia, Etiqa Insurance, MDEC, Axiata, the media and many others dropping by, curious for a peek into the near future where 90% of work as we know it today will be eliminated in the next ten years. It's been great to meet folks showing up from South Korea and Vietnam. This AI thing, it's going to affect everyone.

Many of you have not dared return, the future seems to revolve around some arcane language named after a slithy animal dubbed "python", new words are emerging as fast as AI startups are getting funding, ANI, AGI, ASI, ML, DL, "training data", data science, models (the non-Victoria's Secret type), DeepMind, TensorFlow, NeuraLink and names of folks who had supposedly seen it all coming and wrote long tomes about it (Ray Kurzweil, Nick Bostrom, Yuval Harari).

If Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates and Elon Musk are worried, maybe you should be too. Or you can dig in to learn a bit more about what's happening and have other's to call when T1000 starts emerging.

The usual time and place this Saturday, our 17th Meetup of Kuala Lumpur AI. Meet the most dedicated technologist that has been for the past few weeks held to task of thinking about the way our nation can have a sliver of chance remaining what it is within the next two decades.

This week, we'll dive deeper into industries that are already benefiting immediately from such automation and walkthrough what some of the USD 10 billion dollars of AI funding are going into.

The financial markets are already weighting AI to be the largest event in humankind's history - evidence of that today is five largest companies in the world by market capitalisation are AI powered/driven/all-in companies - Apple, Amazon, Google, Microsoft and Facebook.


And a sixth - Alibaba, will be joining the top list soon.

Those of you who have a demo, drop a note and schedule your slot.

And for those who can't make it, do check out the following book if you have read this far:
