We’ll be testing our skills together at one of SF’s many trivia night bars; since we can only have a few people, we’ll be using a lottery system to see who gets in (works so well for housing, right?).

If you don’t get selected, no worries, we’ll get you back your money. This is a great way to test your skills, meet some cool fun people, and try out a new spot. Let’s get it!

SF Design Week + d.school Present: I Love Algorithms: Designing with Machine Learning

Register here to secure your spot.

This d.school workshop as part of San Francisco Design Week will explore the intersection of machine learning + design in a lower resolution and experiential way.

Do you tune out when people mention machine learning, artificial intelligence, and other big words that reference emerging technologies? Do you want to understand what they are and how they might support your work and impact society? Are you “not a tech person”? If you answered yes to any of those, you are exactly the type of person that needs to be part of shaping, using, and working with emerging technology. And no, you don’t need to know anything about code. Together we’ll learn by doing.

We have secured 10 discounted tickets exclusively for Stanford alums. Tickets will be distributed as first come first served. The event is otherwise sold out. Get your tickets now! For those who are interested and have time, we will head to lunch together nearby after the workshop.

For more info, please visit: https://sfdesignweek.org/events/i-love-algorithms-designing-with-machine-learning/
