Friday Five – August 30, 2019

FunnelAI’s Friday Five is a collection of five of the coolest news articles and ideas from us and the tech industry.

What We’re Up To: On Wednesday night we hosted our Women in AI Panel event. It was a great turnout and we learned a lot from the women who spoke. Below are some of our favorite quotes from that night:

“When it comes to business, it’s not just the technology that matters, it’s the people, passion, AND the product.” – Suja Kamma

Seven women on stage. 6 panelists and 1 moderator.

“No one is perfect. You have to have courage and be vulnerable. When you put yourself out there, you learn.” – Dr. Amy Daali

“When you see an open door, smash through it.” – Dr. Amanda Heiderman

Thanks to everyone who attended our event! And thank you to our food sponsor, Smoke BBQ, for providing us with the best pulled pork sliders we’ve ever had.

What We’re Watching: We really love this video from MuleSoft. It’s a great explainer on what API is and how it works. 

Cool Tech: Quick, Draw! – Have you tried this game developed by Google? You draw a picture and it uses neural network artificial intelligence to guess what your drawing is.

Screenshot of Quick, Draw. Can a neural network learn to recognize doodling? Help teach it by adding your drawing to the world's largest doodling data set, shared publicly to help with machine learning research.

For Local Businesses: Kindness as Currency – good deeds can be rewarded by good mentions.

Cyber News: Space crime? That might be a thing now. 

Thanks for reading! We’ll catch you next week to share a brand new Friday Five. Make sure to read all of our other blog posts at funnelai.com/blog
