Hello Wednesday by Orange Silicon Valley "Training data: the hidden engine behind AI"

About this event

We are pleased to invite you to the next Hello Wednesday event by Orange Silicon Valley on the topic of “Training data: the hidden engine behind AI".

Join us on Wednesday, November 10th, from 8:30 AM – 10:00 AM (PST) / 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM (CEST)

AI can enable a more responsible world. Yet, unlocking the full potential of the technology requires vast amounts of high quality training data to build the underlying algorithms that power it. In particular, use cases in settings and industries with low levels of digitization face greater challenges collecting and collating this data.

Orange Silicon Valley’s next Hello Wednesday virtual event, “Training data: the hidden engine behind AI,” will explore these topics with a panel of experts in AI and two specific use cases: low-resource languages and the construction industry. Register and join us for an exciting conversation about how better training data can propel the technology forward and enable new use cases.
