Latin American Meeting In Artificial Intelligence
The best of AI for Latin America
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the potential to dramatically improve the lives of people and increase the prosperity of businesses, but solving a problem as hard as intelligence will require a diversity of thought and the best minds from every corner of the globe. Our mission is to support the advancement of Latin American talent, research, and companies in AI through an annual event.
The primary goals of the event are:
- To offer training in advanced machine learning topics, such as deep learning and reinforcement learning.
- To strengthen the machine learning community by fostering collaborations between Latin American researchers, and creating opportunities for connections and knowledge exchange with the broader international community.
- To grow awareness around how AI may be used for the benefit of Latin America
In the hopes of inspiring wide and diverse participation, there will be no registration fees for accepted students and Khipu will provide financial assistance for travel expenses to select applicants. The event format is largely inspired by the success of our friends at the Deep Learning Indaba. We are very thankful to our sponsors and speakers for their invaluable support.
Khipu 2020 update in light of COVID-19
Given the seriousness and uncertainty regarding the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus we have decided not to host an event in 2020. Sadly it is not possible for us to guarantee the Khipu experience we strive for. On top of the health concerns, many of the key logistical elements — such as venues, speakers, and flights — need to be confirmed several months in advance, and in the current world context brings a lot of extra challenges in these regards.
Nonetheless, we are committed to hosting an event in 2021, and are thinking about creative ways to engage our community, so stay tuned for updates and contact us with ideas for staying connected! And hope to see you all in 2021!
