A.I. for Anybody presented by Mac McMahon
This is a combination workshop/presentation by special guest Mac MaMahon, founder of A.I. for Anybody. We’ve all heard of Artifical Intelligence (A.I.)…but how well do we actually understand it? Mac explains A.I. concepts, challenges and applications to a broad audience, using hands-on, technology-free activities; no computer science background necessary!
Meet your instructor: Mac McMahon studied International Politics at Penn State University, but his passions are computer programming, data science and artificial intelligence. He is a co-founder of A.I. For Anyone, which promotes artificial intelligence literacy among the public. McMahon is also working on becoming a Machine Learning Engineer.
