Weather Alert: Brace for an AI Heatwave 🥵

Not even the July 4th heatwaves can compare to the sizzling developments we've been cooking up in the world of AI this week.

Our upcoming webinar on prompt engineering is already sparking interest, with over 100 forward-thinking tech builders ready to dive in. The anticipation is sizzling, and we can't wait to welcome Daniel Balsam—the creator of the hit AI open-source framework, surv_ai and AI lead at Ripplematch—to fan the flames of this hot topic.

In the spirit of collaboration and knowledge sharing, we recently had the privilege of hosting an executive roundtable with May Habib, CEO and founder of Writer. The discussion was a hot pot of fresh ideas and promising advancements—and let's just say, the insights exchanged have fueled our collective drive to "write" the next chapter of AI's evolution.

Now, we're ready to set Tech Chicago Week ablaze! On July 13th, we're transforming the Windy City into a virtual playground of AI innovation. Prepare for an immersive journey into the future of AI, complete with cutting-edge AR/VR experiences and a unique AI fortune teller.

The grand finale? Our Enterprise AI hackathon finalists will ignite the Navy Pier Main Stage with live demos of their groundbreaking prototypes to an audience of over 5000!

Grab a cool drink and your sunhat, because the summer of AI is just starting to heat up.

Just How Productive Does Generative AI Make Us?

Using generative AI in just a few functions could drive most of the technology's impact across potential corporate use cases.

AI now has the potential to automate 60 to 70 percent of the work that takes up an employee's time. With its advanced natural language capabilities, generative AI will revolutionize the landscape of knowledge work.

A decade ago, McKinsey estimated that knowledge workers spent about 20% of their time, or one day each work week, searching for and gathering information.
For starters, generative AI can take on that 20% of tasks by rapidly “reading” vast libraries of corporate information stored in natural language.

Desmystifying AI in Healthcare

Is healthcare the next AI frontier?

In a recent article from Andreessen Horowitz, the call to action is clear: "Hey Tech, It’s Time To Build. In Healthcare."

The healthcare industry, representing one-fifth of the American economy, is ripe for disruption.

Despite being a complex and highly regulated industry, it presents an enormous opportunity for tech-driven innovation.

At its core, healthcare is a data, operations, and logistics problem—and a consumer experience and engagement problem—areas where the tech world excels.

We'll be hosting a panel in to explore these themes on July 27th at 11AM ET, with insights from Mida Pezeshkian, PhD, a leading AI expert; Ohad Zadok, a trailblazing healthtech CEO; and Ed Kopetsky, the former CIO of Stanford Children's Hospital.

We're inviting all tech enthusiasts, AI builders, and healthcare professionals to join us as we explore the transformative power of generative AI in healthcare.
