Join us on Tuesday 5/23 at 6:00 for a dive into the latest developer releases from Google. With the mission to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful, Google is paving the road of innovations and open-source community development. This year AI is the big news, and we will see the many ways that Google has incorporated AI into their developer products.
We will see what's next for the Chat GPT, and discuss the AI limitations.
The special guest speaker, an award-winning hi-tech entrepreneur, writer, and teacher Emma Butin will give a lecture Open AI - The Google vs Microsoft battle, covering the latest evolution in AI, a brief history, where are we now, and what are we expected to experience - explained simply.
We will watch the developer keynote and have a discussion about the ways we individually can leverage these enhancements for our education and development progress.
We suggest that you watch the Google I/O keynote (quick summary here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QpBTM0GO6xI) about the rest of their products as a precursor to our watching of the developer keynote.
