Learn about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) and how to incorporate AI into your programs and projects.

This session serves as an introduction to AI/ML and a primer for the NetHope Global Summit 2019 where three in-person sessions that focus on AI for Good will occur. The session is designed for those interested in learning about:

  • What is AI, ML, Big Data?
