The Future is Now: Practical AI, Computer Vision, and Emerging Technologies

Artificial intelligence (AI), Computer Vision, and the Algorithms behind them can seem more like science fiction than tangible tech. However, these technologies are already being used by the world’s leading companies in practical and valuable ways. Engaging with these technologies presents great opportunities, but some of the concepts can be intimidating to approach — what does AI actually entail beyond being a buzzword? How does computer vision work and what potential pitfalls do we need to be mindful of? How can we take all of this learning and incorporate it into better products?
Join us for this dynamic online summit and learn from industry experts including Jonathan Assayag, Senior Manager (PM/UX/BI) at Amazon Echo Frames, Kelly Moreira, Software Engineer, Data Scientist, and Developer Advocate at Roboflow, and Aishwarya Srinivasan, Data Scientist at Google Cloud AI Services. Gain invaluable insights and learn how to set yourself up for success with world-class learning opportunities from Carnegie Mellon University School of Computer Science Executive Education.


Topics covered during the summit include:

  • The Role of AI/ML in Digital Assistants | Jonathan Assayag
  • Preventing Algorithmic Bias in Computer Vision | Kelly Moreira
  • Building Better AI Products | Aishwarya Srinivasan
  • Throughout the event, you’ll also learn about opportunities to dive deeper into these cutting-edge fields
    through learning opportunities at Carnegie Mellon University, ranked #1 in Artificial Intelligence Specialty and
    Graduate Programs for Computer Science (US News and World Report).
Senior Manager (PM/UX/BI) - Amazon Echo Frames
Jonathan is an experienced product leader with a track record of developing and launching innovative products. At Amazon, he heads the Product Experiences Group for Amazon’s smart eyewear initiative, Echo Frames (Alexa-powered eyeglasses and the company's first wearable device). His teams oversee Product Management, UX Design, User Research, and Business Intelligence across both hardware and software development. He co-founded and led a venture-backed startup in Brazil called Lema21 Eyewear (dubbed ""Warby Parker of Brazil"" by TechCrunch), which cut middlemen to design and retail quality eyewear for a disruptive price. The combined company became Brazil’s largest eyewear eCommerce and Jonathan led the product team to launch the country’s first mobile eyewear retail platform. He began his product career in online education, building a scholarship search engine ranked #1 by USA Today. Jonathan has an MBA from Harvard Business School and engineering degree from Carnegie Mellon University.
