Latent Space Demo Day — Call for Demos!
~200 AI hackers are gathering in SF on Friday. Not local but have an AI project/idea you want to show off? No problem - details inside!
People really, really want to hack on and share their AI ideas.
We first floated the idea of a small (15-20 person) hackathon in an Airbnb a few weeks ago and but now have 200 registrations - way more than we had space for, or ability to handle logistically. We’ve capped the Airbnb, but we loved the energy of everyone sending stuff in and wanted to give people room to shine.
So Alessio (via Decibel) and some friends of Latent Space kicked in to take Demo Day up a notch and we’re going to open it up to everyone both local and remote!
