George Gvishiani

In this new series of the Wharton UK AI Studio, we will talk about the latest research and applications in Machine Learning and Deep Learning.

We will hold two distinct types of events:
1. For investors and entrepreneurs
2. For machine learning researchers and engineers

This upcoming event, on May 19th, is designed for investors and entrepreneurs. This event's subject will be AI in Cyber Security: "Attacks and Breaches on your AI models: the three most common threats." For our business audience - perhaps less familiar with Machine Learning we will present, at a very high level, the most recent and/or interesting research in the field (especially, in Deep Learning). Furthermore, we will talk about how the results can be used to solve real-life problems, satisfy diverse business needs, remove pain points, and more generally improve the human condition.

In the upcoming events, dedicated to the technical audience, we will analyze the bleeding edge Machine Learning research and technological innovations to better understand the theoretical advancements in the field.

Our ambition is to bring together investors and the tech community and to maximize the positive impact that innovation can have on our lives. We want to help start-ups that are willing to bring the newest products based on the latest Machine Learning/Deep Learning research to the market. Hence, we plan to help selected AI start-ups in getting the necessary support from Wharton Alumni.

These new series are presented by:
