Artificial intelligence and machine learning is changing the world as we know it, and entrepreneurs are just starting to scratch the surface on leveraging its power to upend industries like transportation, security, healthcare, finance, and more.

To help aspiring entrepreneurs better understand the opportunities and challenges of doing business in the space, we recently hosted a special, interactive online event with some of the world's foremost experts building, scaling, and funding A.I. and robotics startups. 

Over 500 people tuned into the live online event, which featured Jeff Schneider (Former Engineering Lead at Uber, and Research Professor at Carnegie Mellon), Michael Harries (Partner at The Robotics Hub), Birpal Sachdev (Leader of Advanced Technologies at Philips), and Adeo Ressi (CEO of the Founder Institute).
