Our Mission

Artificial Intelligence is one of the most controversial topics in the Tech Industry. Some people embrace this trend while others fear it. And while we can’t judge for sure whether AI is a step in the right direction, we know one thing for sure:

“AI is here to stay”.

We are a Society committed to the further development and understanding of Artificial Intelligence technologies in Hong Kong. With our monthly events and technology workshops, we aim to develop inquiry and curiosity about AI among those who are not in direct contact with this science.

Together we can create a platform for specialists to share their ideas and knowledge to help us prepare for the many benefits and challenges that this technology will create in the coming decade.

What We Believe

There is no reason why Hong Kong should stay behind in technology, especially as AI threatens the job security of people in its markets.

Artificial Intelligence is an increasingly integral part of many industries, including finance, marketing, retail, and logistics. We believe that by sharing the current state of the art and future development, we can help boost those industries while preventing employees from losing their jobs.
