Latin American Meeting
In Artificial Intelligence



11th – 15th / NOVEMBER

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.

Khipu 2019 will take place November 11-15 at the Facultad de Ingeniería, Universidad de la República in Montevideo, Uruguay. 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.
