Welcome to our very first deeplearning.ai Pie & AI webinar meetup in Europe on October 17th, 2019!

If you’re wondering what an AI career looks like, what the best learning path is, what courses you should take and how to overcome common challenges when breaking into AI, come join us!

The event will kick off with a live video talk from Dr. Andrew Ng. He will share exciting AI trends and tips and tricks for how to build a career in AI. We'll follow with a keynote and a panel discussion from local guest speakers. They'll also be taking questions from the audience.

This Pie & AI webinar meetup series will be hosted in several cities in Europe simultaneously. This one is in Berlin. Special thanks to deeplearning.ai Ambassador Jan Zawadzki and Carmeq GmbH for co-hosting the event.

Come meet your fellow deep learners! We hope to see you for Pie & AI on 10/17!
