Register for the June 10 meeting.

Join us as ITKAN continues its journey on artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data science with a presentation by data science / machine learning award-winning practitioner Kevin Hartman. He will discuss and demonstrate Carby, an app that provides consumers quick access to information about the products we choose related to their impact on our environment simply by snapping a photo! Using the power of Ai, Carby will reveal the product’s carbon score and suggest lower impact alternatives if they exist.

The team that Kevin is part of recently won the World Innovation Day Hackathon, an international competition to demonstrate the creative use of technology to address our global challenges in achieving a more sustainable future. See the app and learn how the team plans to build Carby into a production-capable system that includes more Ai models and an automated data pipeline.
