Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Neural Networks… we’ve all heard the buzzwords, but what does it mean for our creative industry?

On May 29, thought leaders from some of Canada’s leading agency and tech players will discuss the creative challenges and opportunities that arise in the age of Artificial Intelligence – and how AI is fuelling the next wave of creativity.

This event will feature speakers, followed by a panel discussion. Speakers include Mike Halminen (Creative Lead at Google Canada) and Annie Bedard (Strategy Lead at Jam3).
