Welcome to the St. Louis AI Summit

Hey everyone— Did you know that the Coronavirus was discovered by an artificial intelligence company before the WHO and CDC? I just learned this during a KMOX interview with Eric Druker, a principal at Booz Allen Hamilton, as we discussed what AI means for St. Louis and our lives (catch the interview this Wednesday). More than likely AI touches your life in some way whether you know it or not.

This Thursday we welcome you to the St. Louis AI Summit to learn from experts at Booz Allen Hamilton and other leading companies working with this technology. There’s something for the curious (check the exhibits!), those wanting to learn the basics, and those looking for deeper conversations. You’ll also get to hear how AI talent in St. Louis is turning our city into a national hub. You’re not going to want to miss this event (plus, if you get there early you can grab a small bite.)

Check the lineup below for details.
