  • PANTALKS: AI MORNINGs

    CUTTING THROUGH THE HYPE

    What are the Pantalks AI mornings about?

    Nowadays you have numerous options to get informed about Artificial Intelligence (AI) achievements and progresses.

     

    Actually, it can even be overwhelming, as everyone claims to have embraced AI and is “fully taking advantage” of this amazing new way of sorting through data. It may even make you feel a tech slacker or that you are missing the the-next-great-thing boat.

     

    Beyond buzzwords!

    Pantalks AI mornings present applied machine learning use cases that serve real business needs and leaves aside over-inflated claims.
     

    Attend these short (45 min) morning sessions prior to starting your work day and get a rapid understanding of applied AI business cases and their integration implications.
     

    Are the Pantalks AI mornings for me?

    Traditionally Pantalks are visited by decision-makers, innovators, entrepreneurs, executives, thinkers, and doers to explore innovative technologies as well as their societal impacts. It’s also an Impact Hub Community event! Get your seat. We'd love to see you there.

     

    Format (venue, dates)

    Colab @ Impact Hub Zürich, monthly, every last Tuesday, not during summer / winter holidays

     

    - Tue 25.02.2020: Michael Born, CEO of PXL Vision AG

    - More dates will follow soon

     

    Time: 8.00 - 8.45: coffee & gipfeli, introduction, presentation, Q&A, open discussion

     

    Each event will be promoted and organized through our Meetup group (+2400 members!).

  • Our Story

    Pantalks, initiated by Panter employees in 2010, began as a small community meetup where individuals looking to exchange knowledge, tech and non-tech, could connect and share their insights. Today, with +2700 meetup members and more than 200+ Pantalks hosted, the community has grown into a meaningful network. Once a month we host an intriguing talk with fresh from the field insights and engaging discussion over snacks and drinks— we'd love you to join us!
