Human and artificial intelligence

The internet and computers have fundamentally changed what it means to be human. This class explores the intersection of human and artificial intelligence (AI). It covers the foundational concepts of both neuroscience and AI, starting from the origin of AI and building up to an in depth discussion of innovations at the bleeding edge. This course covers the concepts and math required to understand AI being implemented by tech companies and created in academia, from the perspective of how advances in AI relate to advances in neuroscience.

This course has an optional second section for programming that teaches the Julia language, a new language designed for AI. Julia allows AI innovations to be quickly translated into products that run at real time. It is accessible, dynamically-typed and interactive, yet fast and designed for high performance like C.

Smart Contracts

Over the course of five two-hour lunch and learn sessions, business architects learn about crypto economics and the unique requirements of blockchain software.  This is the perfect opportunity for anyone to learn the basics of smart contracts and the value that they add in an application. After this learning experience, you can identify great crypto opportunities and lead a team to build out your new product idea.

Founder Funding

In one action-packed five hour session, company founders pitch from their current decks and get instant feedback and advice from fellow founders.  You will leave the seminar with a new set of slides and actionable advice for how to improve your chances of financing your startup. Seth Goldstein and Stewart Noyce lead the workshop from practical real world experience: Seth has raised over $100m as a serial entrepreneur, angel investor and VC; while Stewart has extensive product launch experience, including a reboot of Certicom that led to a $40m+ private placement.
