Over 120 curious and creative individuals came to our first event, "Humans + Machines: Using Artificial Intelligence to Power Your People," held last February 19 at our offices at Bonifacio Global City. The event was made possible with a sponsorship from the World Bank.

Pia Faustino, Erika Legara, Stephanie Sy, and Clare Corthell (L-R) shared their experiences and insights on artificial intelligence and data science.

Thinking Machines CEO and Data Scientist Stephanie Sy spoke about the current artificial intelligence and data science landscape and how this is could impact the Philippines in the next five to ten years:


Complex systems scientist Dr. Erika Legara talked about how she and her colleagues at Singapore's Agency for Science, Technology and Research used machine learning to simulate how different types of commuters might respond to changes in the city's public transportation system:

Thinking Machines' content strategist and data storyteller Pia Faustino spoke about the process of turning raw data into meaningful, engaging stories that organizations can use to influence, persuade, inform, and inspire:


The event was followed by a lively hour-long question and answer forum. Big thanks to our audience for being so engaged.
