November 2023 - Our Second CincyAI Meetup

CincyAI Meetup Video & Photos, RSVP Links & More!

Hello there, CincyAI Community Member — 

At our second CincyAI Meetup that took place last Tuesday, we discussed all the massive changes in AI land since our inaugural October meeting…and holy moly….all that’s transpired IN ONE WEEK since we met with Friday’s news of OpenAI’s board ousting Sam Altman is WILD! And still unfolding!

Needless to say, there will be A LOT to talk about at our next meeting on December 12 from 3-5pm at the UC Digital Futures building in room 140 again — sign up if you haven’t already! 

Our November meeting saw 120 amazing humans register. This, plus our 200 email subscribers, makes us the largest AI meetup in the Cincinnati region! 🥳 

Thank you for being part of this fast-growing and supportive community dedicated to bringing everyone interested in AI, from the AI-curious to the seasoned, together to connect and collaborate. At CincyAI, we believe in the power of collective wisdom to drive the AI revolution forward. We also understand that the whole is not just greater, but exponential in its impact, especially as Cincinnati becomes known as Responsible AI leaders!

We have a lot of follow-up items from our last meetup for you in this email:

  • LinkedIn Group

    • You voted! And our new digital hub for CincyAI Meetup will be our newly created LinkedIn Group.
