A meetup was organized by the IEEE Young Professional(YP) in Jordan with the aim of building and empowering IEEE Young Professional and student members with a solid experience in Artificial Intelligence(AI), Internet of Things(IoT) and Big Data fields. This would lay the grounds to breed a new group of engineers to lead, experiment, design and develop next-generation intelligent solutions to solve real-world problems.
Main objectives of the meetup were networking, building solid experience in Artificial intelligence and providing an opportunity for all IEEE YP members and other engineers in Jordan who are interested in this field to get together under one umbrella.
IEEE YP AI meetup brings together experts in the industry and academics who work in cutting-edge AI research and development to share their work and thoughts on recent and future developments in both Hardware and Software for AI. This gives an invaluable opportunity for the attendees to get to know about the exciting developments and future trends of ever-changing deep-tech. On the other hand, the meetup provides a platform for the audience to get to know like-minded peers who share same enthusiasm and interests.
This time the audience was composed of experts from the industry, academia and university students who are interested/working on AI-related techs. The attendance exceeded 150 which included both IEEE members and non-members.
The meetup was comprised of sessions such as Introduction to IEEE Young Professionals, Presentations on IOT, Big Data and AI, a panel discussion with Jordanian experts, professors and entrepreneurs, and a networking reception.
This meetup was a starting point for a string of upcoming events.
