GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
KUNGFU.AI opens its doors to the Austin community each month. AI for Good #HelpingForward is our way of helping give back through the things we know best: data science and artificial intelligence, served along with some coffee and tea for good measure.
LOOKING TO MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT IN THE WORLD?
The last Friday of every month, we welcome nonprofits, public sector groups and other organizations and individuals that are looking to make a positive change in the world on their data science and AI projects. We really love doing AI for Good #HelpingForward because it lets us share our experience and skills in these leading-edge technologies with people who are passionate about making a positive change in the world.
If you’re looking for help with data science or AI, or just want a hot beverage, come by and hang out with us on a Friday morning. We can’t write or debug code for you but we can help brainstorm and validate ideas, direct you to the right technologies, and think through business strategy – and hopefully improve your day!
NEXT OPEN OFFICE HOURS
KUNGFU.AI’s next AI for Good #HelpingForward open office hours will be held on Friday, January 28th in the morning via Zoom. And given all that is happening now, we are particularly focused on helping those impacted by COVID-19 or focused on systemic inequities and justice.
If you want to join us, please contact us to schedule an appointment. We’ll make sure to have our minds ready and computer cameras on.
LOOKING TO BREAK INTO DATA SCIENCE OR ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE?
As part of #HelpingForward and our commitment to diversity and inclusion, if you’re a woman and/or from an underrepresented group in the tech community looking to break into the fields of data science or artificial intelligence, let us know and stop by our open office hours as well. You can help us give advice to the companies that show up and hey, who knows where that might lead!
With this blog post, the co-founders of KUNGFU.AI are hoping to start a global movement under the banner #HelpingForward. It’s ambitious, but think about the impact if we can catch lightning in a bottle and this takes off!
We are encouraging all companies — throughout the world — to open their doors one morning a month to help nonprofits, public sector groups and other organizations and individuals that are looking to make a positive change in the world. And, at the same time, to welcome traditionally underrepresented people in their industry or sector who are looking to break into their field to help these organizations as well and see where it might all lead.
If you were helped along the way to where you are today, ask yourself if it is your turn for #HelpingForward.
