The possibilities with AI and Machine Learning are seemingly endless, but where do you start? What is a reasonable approach for a Startup or SME? Where to begin?
Who better help us understand the possibilities than Cyrus Wong, AWS Machine Learning Hero, from the Cloud Innovation Centre at the IT Department of the Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (Lee Wai Lee).
Get your ticket today!
RSVP and tune in on the 28th of April at 19:00 HKT via Zoom to our 63rd event in Hong Kong and our 2nd #SGVirtual, all part of the #AWSMentorshipMonth presented with AWS.
The fireside chat will be led by Amrit Sethi who is both part-owner of a 60+-year-old travel agency and co-founder of a startup in data privacy. AI and Machine Learning are great for both.
Q&A with AWS
During the event, Cyrus will be joined by Sze Lok Chan from Amazon Web Services.
We will be using Slido to make the virtual Q&A efficient so keep an eye out for the Slido code that we will send out on the 27th and 28th before the event.

We will share links to resources in the follow-up e-mail to all registered participants. One of the links will be to Cyrus YouTube channel "AWS Talks in Cantonese (廣東話重講 AWS)"
