We’re back with another AI Tinkerers meetup in Seattle!

👉 Sign up now to join us for an evening of kick-ass demos and networking with other active builders. This is an event you do not want to miss! ☝️☝️☝️

What is AI Tinkerers?

AI Tinkerers is a meetup designed exclusively for practitioners who possess technical, machine learning, and entrepreneurial backgrounds and are actively building and working with foundation models, such as large language models (LLMs) and generative AI. If you’re deeply passionate about creating LLM-enabled applications, have hands-on experience in building such systems, and are eager to connect with like-minded individuals who share your level of commitment, then this group is the perfect fit for you. With AI Tinkerers meetups taking place in multiple cities, we cater to a dedicated community of practitioners.

Who is this for?

We’re not “AI Enthusiasts”, we are AI Tinkerers. The core essence of AI Tinkerers lies in active collaboration surrounding early-stage discovery and innovation, which requires a high degree of experimentation, vulnerability, openness to sharing challenges and learnings, and collaboration among individuals with a shared level of expertise. This unique environment allows us to push the boundaries of what’s possible with AI and LLMs while maintaining a strong sense of camaraderie and mutual support.

💻 Event Format

  • Doors open at 5:30 pm
  • Demos at 6:00 pm
  • Networking
  • Doors close at 8:00 pm

There will be drinks and appetizers served, courtesy of our sponsors.
