The Summit

Berkeley Haas School of Business
01 March 2019
08:30 am

Our vision is to bring together diverse perspectives on AI from multiple corners of campus and industry to bridge the gap between mostly technical students who focus their efforts on understanding the underlying machinery of AI/ML, others who only know the cliches of killer robots, mass unemployment or utopia, etc.


We want to break past the clichés and technical details, and help all people to start thinking about AI in a more comprehensive, nuanced, and thoughtful way, preparing effective and responsible future leaders. We also intend for this to be a useful networking platform for interaction between students and professionals. This event will consist of multiple speakers with diverse backgrounds in AI/ML as well as opportunities for attendees to speak with representatives from AI-based companies from startups to major tech firms.
