Data & AI Community Day Durban: Season of AI

event date

20 Jul 2024


Coastlands Umhlanga Hotel and Convention Centre, 329 Umhlanga Rocks Dr, Umhlanga Ridge, uMhlanga, 40 Durban, South Africa

The Azure, AI/ML & Data Community Durban is pleased to bring you Data and AI Community Day Durban: Season of AI!

Microsoft recently introduced Microsoft Community Pilot. This initiative sees Microsoft supply slides and supporting demos to help anyone in the community quickly deliver a talk around topics important to Microsoft. The content is prepared by Microsoft but is free to reuse and remix to deliver to local user groups, meetups, and community events.

As Microsoft intensifies its focus on AI, it is only natural that AI would be the first topic for this initiative, hence Season of AI.

The Data and AI Community Day Durban: Season of AI is a dynamic full-day FREE in-person event on July 20, 2024, at the Coastlands Umhlanga Hotel and Convention Centre in Umhlanga.

NOTE: We had to change the venue at the last minute to Coastlands Umhlanga Hotel and Convention Centre due to the unprecedented demand for tickets. If you have friends or fellow speakers attending the event, please let them know.

The event promises an exciting, in-depth exploration of artificial intelligence and other hot topics in the realm of Data and AI.

The Azure, AI/ML & Data Community Durban group is a user group for the community, by the community. It is a learning experience where we share, learn, and encourage the community to do more with Azure, AI/ML, and Data to solve problems. Our mission statement as this group is to become and create heroes of society through Azure, AI/ML, and Data. We Do Positive things through innovation and passion.
