AI Tinkerers Seattle - May Meetup

April 01, 2023

We’re excited to announce our next meetup on Thursday, May 11th, from 4pm - 7pm at the AI2 rooftop, sponsored by Technical Director of the AI2 Incubator, Vu Ha.

THEME: “On the Road to AGI with Agent Systems.”

In the past few weeks, numerous experiments and proposals for autonomous agent systems that complete tasks for you without any intervention have been trending on Github, making headlines and taking over Twitter. John Carmack said, “it is likely that the code for AGI is going to be 10’s of thousands of lines of code, not millions of lines of code.” Could early experiments such as babyAGI and AutoGPT be the precursors to AGI, much like how early human attempts at flight, such as the Montgolfier brothers’ hot air balloon, and Sir George Cayley’s glider, paved the way for the Wright brothers’ first successful powered flight?

Join us for lightning talks and networking at the AI2 rooftop!

Thanks to everyone who participated in last night’s AI Tinkerers meetup at AI2. It was a beautiful afternoon with the sun shining and an incredible view of the lake. We heard a fireside chat with Yohei Nakajima, creator of BabyAGI, and enjoyed lightning talks from members of the community including Killian Lucas, Ka’i Kau, Brian Fioca, Chakkaradeep and Ajay. A big thank you to AI2 Incubator for proving the incredible venue, drinks and snacks, and a special shout-out to Jen Haller from Ascend who worked the reception during the entire event.

UPDATE: ☀️☀️☀️ We have some great news! Thanks to the beautiful weather, we have been able to open up extra space at AI2 and confirm a larger number of people from the waitlist. If you were one of the lucky ones to be added, you should have received an email or text notification. Please double-check your status by checking the RSVP page


The event’s fireside chat with Yohei and lightning talks will be live-streamed on YouTube starting at 5PM PT at

UPDATE 3: 🚗 Parking

There is free street parking across the street from the AI2 Research Institute (back-in only along the gravel strip) but it has been full lately. If you are unable to find a spot, there is free four-hour parking in the Gas Works Park public parking lot, which is only a short walk from the building.


  • 4pm = door open
  • 5pm is when the official program will begin. Be sure to arrive well before that.
  • The building has a hard-stop at 7pm, so we will be wrapping up at 6:30pm
  • There will be an after-party (location to be announced at event)

🔔 If you were not able to make the confirmed list, please head to 🔥 and add yourself to the June event which has quietly been posted but not advertised yet.


Yohei Nakajima (@yoheinakajima) - Creator of 🍼🤖 BabyAGI, a task-driven autonomous agent open-source project. Yohei will give an over of the project and the many forks and experiments that are being conducted with BabyAGI, as well as his thoughts on other related projects such as AutoGPT.

BabyAGI has been at the top of Github trending over the past week, and we’re thrilled to have Yohei join us!


We invite anyone to give a lightning talk or demo of their own Autonomous Agent experiments! To participate, please email [email protected] with a short description of your demo or talk.


The event’s fireside chat with Yohei and lightning talks will be live-streamed on YouTube starting at 5PM PT at
