Description

We're back! Join us for the September edition of Maker Monday, our monthly slice of inspiration from the creative and tech worlds.

We're delighted to welcome two amazing speakers to this month.

Our main speaker is Kari Lawler who will talk about What is AI and how it’s often misperceived.

Kari Lawler was accepted onto the Entrepreneurs for the Future (e4f) incubator at just 14 years old, where she became the youngest ever start-up, entrepreneur and AI consultant on the Innovation Birmingham campus.

Through being academically very able, Kari left mainstream education early to pursue her intense interest in Artificial Intelligence. Now, at 15 years old and with the guidance and mentorship from Barclays Eagle Labs she is utilising this knowledge to help start-ups and SMEs understand and deploy AI within their businesses, through consultancy.

Kari’s rapid rise within the tech world has been acknowledged with multiple awards, including her winning the coveted UK Space Agency SatelLife challenge ‘18, for her AI proposal. Being named one of ten top teen female tech talents in the UK through the InspiringJuniors UK competition. Plus, most recently being the youngest ever nominee and winner of the Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce Future Face 2018 award for Technology & Innovation.

Additionally, she has become an in-demand event speaker, championing young entrepreneurship and is in the process of setting up a not-for-profit AI Youth Programme, with the sole aim to encourage more 13 to 25-year-olds to explore and understand the world of AI.

Our second speaker is Adam Woodall, co-organiser of the 3D Printing Meetup. Held at STEAMhouse in Birmingham last month, Adam will present a round-up of the recent @3dmeetupuk event which brought together 3D printing enthusiasts and makers in a community-run event, sharing 3D printing skills and know-how. Adam will also give us a sneak peek into what's happening next with the event.

As always, we will keep the inspiration flowing with free drinks and food.

Places are limited and will go fast and booking is essential.
