AI for Good: Bridging Science and Industry for a Better Future
AI for Good Foundation
09:50AM - Day 2
04:30PM - Day 1
The United Nation’s goals for a better world by 2030 seem unlikely to be reached. Can industry and Artificial Intelligence be the engine to help us close the research and implementation gap on the biggest challenges of our generation? We think so. This talk will cover several successful examples where sophisticated AI systems are having an impact on areas as diverse as food security, the future of employment, and childhood health.
- Why is Artificial Intelligence an ideal framework for tackling massive societal challenges?
- What kinds of problems can we address?
- What is missing? How does AI fit in?
- Examples of successful technical partnerships.
- How do I get my company involved?

10 Microtrends for Applied AI Startups
12:00PM - Day 2
A ‘micro’ trend is more than a ‘fad’ but less influential than a ‘macro’ trend. Mark Penn, who coined the term, referred to microtrends as “the small forces behind tomorrow’s big changes”
Artificial intelligence, machine learning and blockchain are all macro trends that will persist beyond 10 or 20 years. Microtrends typically last 3 to 5 years before being replaced, or becoming implicit as a result of widespread adoption. An example would be the application of a specific AI technology to a common use case, one which eventually disrupts an entire market horizontal or industry vertical.
Based on 490 interactions with ‘Applied AI’ startups (22% of all Forward Partners’ leads in 2017) and examples from our own portfolio, we share our observations as the leading early stage VC to predict the top AI microtrends over the next 5 years.

Democratising computer vision with deep learning
CEO and Founder
02:00PM - Day 2
Is AI and deep learning a tool for the masses? Can it be integrated in embedded devices or time critical applications?
In this presentation we are going to discuss how we democratize deep learning by studying the application scenario and hardware platform in order to be able to transfer the knowledge and accuracy of large scale CNN networks in embedded devices, thus making deep learning a powerful tool for everybody. Use cases examples include process automation, surveillance and product identification.
