As the saying goes “It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity”. November 6th, 2017 was like every other day. After catching up with some schedules and a brief meeting. I attended AI MASTERCLASS organized by Developers Circle Kano. The program was hosted at Digital Development Hub in Zoo Road. You might wonder what is AI, well it is an acronym for Artificial Intelligence.
Artificial Intelligence is intelligence displayed by machines, in contrast with the natural intelligence displayed by humans and other animals. Artificial intelligence (AI) might seem like the realm of science fiction, but you might be surprised to find out that you’re already using it. AI has a huge effect on your life whether you’re aware of it or not, and its influence is likely to grow in the coming years. AI has been used to develop and advance numerous fields and industries, including finance, health care, education, transportation and more. Did I forget to mention Abdulhakim Bashir, all the way from Katsina joined the program to share his knowledge on neural network, in his speech he said neural network is based on a collection of connected units called artificial neurons analogous to biological neurons in an animal brain.
The program was all about the viewing party, a live video from Paris on Artificial intelligence. During the broadcast, the presenter introduced and described AI detailed. I am not going to say much about it but you really need to watch that video. AI MASTERCLASS was not all about Artificial Intelligence there was as moment of item 7, that’s my favourite part of the event. If you know you are tech freak don’t be left out in the AI events because there are more to come.
