On September 20th, GFT Ventures hosted a select group of senior AI industry leaders at the residence of GFT Founding Managing Partner, Jeff Herbst. This Global AI Council event, which has now become a fundamental component of the Global Corporate Venturing (GCV) network, was moderated / coordinated by Jeff and co-sponsored by Fenwick and Silicon Valley Bank. It included three engaging and insightful roundtable discussions around the topics of Conversational AI, Data Science, and AI hardware/system trends and developments. The attendees included senior leaders from AMD, Citi, In-Q-Tel, Lockheed, Nvidia, Qualcomm and Xerox, as well as CEOs from some of the most interesting and exciting AI & Data Science startups including Deepgram, d-Matrix, Groq, Gretel.ai and TigerGraph. The participants were treated to evening reception catered by PastaRey Foods, prepared using an outdoor kitchen and wood-fired pizza oven. Special thanks to Christina Riboldi and Janice Mawson of GCV, Mark Leahy from Fenwick, and Gerald Brady from SVB for collaborating with us to produce and sponsor this fantastic event.
