Dear CincyAI Community Member — 

Hard to believe this Thursday is February already!

This is your reminder to sign up and join us for our next CincyAI Meetup taking place Tuesday, February 6, from 3-5 pm at the UC Digital Futures building in room 140 — sign up here if you haven’t already! 

After our February 6 meetup, you’re invited to join us across the street at the iconic 1819 Innovation Hub for an AI and alcohol happy hour taking place from 5:30-7:30 pm. The 'Makers + Mixers' event, proudly sponsored by Makers Mark, promises to be an evening where art seamlessly blends with technology that you won’t want to miss. This happy hour is from our community partners MidwestCon and Disrupt Now with Rob Richardson at the helm — thank you, Rob! Sign up for this event here.

We have a special request from our organizing partner, Dr. Kelly Cohen: Review each student video about "What is Responsible AI" then vote for your top 3 favorite videos.

We’re honored to partner with and host our CincyAI meetups at the UC Digital Futures building, an interdisciplinary research facility home to globally recognized leading research in responsible AI. A special thank you to our organizing partner, Dr. Kelly Cohen.
