4 FREE Virtual AI/Tech Conferences for High Schoolers and College Students

by Jasmine Shone

One of the best ways to break into any field is to join a community based around it. After all, through learning from experts and interacting with like-minded peers, you not only gain resources at your disposal but also gain confidence in the fact that succeeding in the field is possible and within your reach. The lowering of this perceived barrier-of-entry is especially important for the field of AI and technology, where popular conception is that its operations are nebulous and reserved for experts only. Therefore, here at CreAItivity, we have compiled a list of reputable conferences in AI/Tech which seek to help you “break-into” AI or grow your skills further. Without further ado, here are 4 free AI/Tech conferences (in no particular order) that you can sign up for today.

International Conference on AI for People: Towards Sustainable AI

This conference, organized by the non-profit association AI for People, aims to provide a platform for people to present, learn and discuss the use of Artificial Intelligence for the societal good, addressing its benefits as well as its risks. In this year's edition, we focus on Sustainable AI as a movement to foster change towards greater ecological integrity and social justice in the entire life cycle of AI systems.

In the spirit of AI for People, we believe it is important that this conference is accessible to everyone – whether you are an academic in the field of AI or not. Hence, we have two paths: Public and Academic. The paths are not mutually exclusive, which means that you can attend both.
