Little something about Islamabad.AI…
Islamabad.AI community came into being in mid 2018 with the passion of helping each other and to democratize the use of Artificial intelligence for everyone. It is successfully connecting people who are AI enthusiasts, who want to help others or need help. This platform is the base of AI in Islamabad which is connecting experts to the learners. AI ecosystem development is the motto of Islamabad.AI. AI has been around for Years and it is the rage at the moment because its time has finally come. From Healthcare to Ecommerce services, AI is providing powers to make insightful decisions. Since we certainly cannot avoid the wave, discussions around AI are important as they assist us in demystifying it.
“AI is becoming integral to many aspects of our lives, both in obvious and subtle ways. It has potential to further humanity by solving beautifully complex problems that cannot be ignored, and menial tasks that should be forgotten. To realise its potential, it is paramount we have diverse, informed, and insightful discussions that not only reflect on the current state, but ultimately define our future.
