Ready for a next Hacking Carrots meetup? This time, together with our Partner Capgemini, we invite you to Cracow to talk about solutions for the 9th UN Sustainable Development Goal – Innovation, Industry, Infrastructure.

During the evening we’ll address such issues as:

🚀 In which sectors in business artificial intelligence has been already implemented and what are the outcomes?

🚀 Where is the biggest potential to apply solutions based on artificial intelligence –  both in business and social areas?

🚀 What role can it play in sustainable development?

🚀 Are humans just tools for artificial intelligence in terms of consumption decisions?

We’ll be joined in the panel discussion by Aleksandra Przegalińska (MIT Sloan School of Management), Łukasz Ulaniuk (Capgemini), and the meeting will be hosted by Ula Skiepko (Geek Girls Carrots, 1000 realities).

Remember that the meetup is also part of the preparation stage for the first Hacking Carrots hackathon!
