We held our next tinyML IN PERSON Meetup in Seattle with Bob Allen from Solve for Why and Max Petrenko from Amazon on October 19, 2023.
Hi there TinyML enthusiasts!
We invite you all to this social gathering bringing together those actively building products or just mildly curious about machine learning applications on constrained end-point devices. We are looking to build on our last Seattle meetup by holding this one in Bellevue. We encourage everyone to bring ideas to the organizers for what you’d like to see from TinyML Meetup Seattle and the TinyML Foundation in the future.
We are also actively seeking presenters for future tech talks from the greater Seattle area. Anyone interested, please respond or use this event to ask questions. Presentations may be in-person or virtual using the TinyML platform. Virtual events offer an opportunity to reach a global community and the TinyML Foundation will assist you with scheduling and promotion. However, we are a humble organization without a budget to rent space or provide catering and other ammenities for in-person events. We either look for venues able to support an ad-hoc gathering (such as this one) or sponsors with the space and ability to host an in-person event. This is a great opportunity to connect with the local community and potentially find collaborators for future projects.
Time: 5 - 6:30 pm PT
Date: 10/19/23, Thursday
Location: Lucky Strike Bellevue
700 Bellevue Way NE Ste 250 · Bellevue, WA
Event Type: In-person social
