Another August, means another Beirut AI Bootcamp, and more exciting gatherings!
Despite all challenges, and all circumstances, here we are again, celebrating the end of a three week successful Bootcamp with more than 80 participants from all over Lebanon!
For three weeks, from August 16 till September 5, our Beirut AI Bootcamp took place! Participants got to dig deep into:
We had the chance to meet more than 80 motivated and passionate participants who came up with brilliant ideas in their final projects. Many came from different backgrounds but with a similar goal: becoming AI heroes!
It was an opportunity to be part of a community that aims to learn and grow despite the challenges.
Our AI enthusiasts also had the chance to attend very useful and informative additional workshops:
As the Bootcamp came to its last day, brilliant minds came together to build AI Projects. 19 teams were formed but 3 caught the judges’ attention and had them select them as winners!
As part of the Beirut AI Membership Program, and as we aim to provide our members with various knowledge in the field of AI, we host exclusive workshops and gatherings monthly.
A very interesting workshop was given to our members by Fares Ismail, on August 28, about Leveraging Data Lakes for improved Analytics and Data Science. Graduated from AUB with a bachelors in Computer and Communication Engineering, Fares Ismail has been very interested in Data Science and Data Engineering for a while now. Shortly after graduating, he moved to France to work as a data engineer, where he has been working on Data Lakes both for Open Source projects and for clients across multiple sectors. Fares is a member of this community full of AI enthusiasts working on advancing their technical skills everyday, and benefiting those around them with their already acquired skills at the same time.
These gatherings are exclusive for Beirut AI members. Join our community by applying for the Beirut AI Membership and get to join all our members’ workshops
Quoting our community member Michael: “Can we also have Thursdays with Beirut AI?”
Our members can’t get enough of our community! On the first Tuesday of every month, members of Beirut AI gather together to share stories about their AI journeys, ask questions, build their network, and most importantly, have fun!
These gatherings give us hope, as they show the resilience and ambition of the Lebanese that keep them improving their skills and building their future, no matter the circumstances. And no wonder Beirut AI will keep pushing forward to provide nothing but the best for such an enthusiastic community!
Jana Kabrit, Beirut AI’s University Instructors Co-Lead, presented on the 14th and 15th of August an “Introduction to Artificial Intelligence” Workshop to the audience of All Girls Code, as part of their Techsplore program, a program that hosts young girls from all backgrounds, free of charge, to introduce them to the applications of coding and programming in different fields.
Jana introduced these young girls to Artificial Intelligence theoretically, and then worked with them to help them build their first AI model on their own.
That’s how our August went, let us know in the comments if you’ve joined any of the above programs during this month!
