Educating audiences
about the latest advances
in artificial intelligence

I am very fortunate to take the occasional break from architecting machine learning platforms in order to teach executives about the latest and greatest developments in artificial intelligence. I cover a variety of topics and try to incorporate a good mix of: (1) where is the technology now?; (2) where is the technology heading?; (3) how can you prepare your organization for this change?; and (4) what are the ethical implications?



To date, I've spoken at dozens of conferences, meetings, and trainings.



These speaking opportunities have allowed me the opportunity to travel all over the globe

Understanding the Explosion of Artificial Intelligence: Past, Present, and Future

We are living in the midst of an explosion of artificial intelligence that is disrupting entire industries and completely transforming the way we live: new cars now have autopilot for highway driving, email and text messaging applications anticipate our next sentence, our phones recognize our faces and voices, and robots are learning to move and manipulate objects on their own. But if the algorithms behind many of these advances were developed decades ago, why are we only now starting to appreciate the full impact of this disruptive technology? Drawing real-world examples from a variety of different companies and industries, Dr. Michael Housman offers up some insight into why the explosion in artificial intelligence is occurring now, how you can best position your organization to harness the power of these advances, and what the future looks like for the fields of computer vision, natural language understanding and generation, reinforcement learning, and cognitive computing.

" PepsiCo organized an executive leadership meeting in Athens and we brought in Singularity University to help us think exponentially and expose us to disruptive technologies. We decided to add AI-ccelerator (vis a vis Dr. Michael Housman) to the retreat because of the rapid growth and adoption of generative AI models like ChatGPT and he did not disappoint! He provided us with an overview of how they work, where the ecosystem is headed, and potential implications for our business. Everyone walked away with a much deeper understanding of how generative AI is going to transform our business and how we can harness those tools to shape the future instead of letting it happen! "

Generative Artificial Intelligence: The Third Wave of Digital Disruption

In the 1990s, we saw the rise of the consumer web completely change the way we produce and consume digital content. In the 2000s, we saw social media transform the way we connect with others. And now, in the 2020's, we're in the middle of a third wave of digital disruption as generative artificial intelligence is transforming the way that content is created. Given that these tools are evolving at an exponential pace, you may be asking yourself: Where is generative AI headed? How can I keep up and stay competitive within a constantly evolving landscape? Where do I even begin? With 15 years of experience helping organizations to transform through the intelligent design of artificial intelligence applications, Dr. Michael Housman outlines a framework for identifying the biggest opportunities to apply generative AI tools and offers up concrete examples of organizations that are already making the leap. He then goes on to lead the audience in an interactive workshop in which they create a product pitch from scratch in just minutes leveraging generative AI tools that are readily available, showcasing just how powerful these applications can be when they’re put in the right hands.

" With the sudden emergence of ChatGPT late last year, we found that our partners and investors were asking us questions about what to do with the new technology. We brought in AI-ccelerator to explain how generative artificial intelligence worked and how they could leverage it within their businesses. Dr. Michael Housman did an incredible job unpacking the dense subject matter, offering up live demos, and making it accessible to a lay audience while also giving them a framework for solving problems they encounter. All of the audience members were raving about his talk afterwards and I cannot recommend him more highly as a subject matter expert and a speaker! "

Creating with Generative AI Tools: An Interactive Workshop

Demystify the rapidly evolving landscape of generative AI through a hands-on experience with cutting-edge tools, such as MidJourney for photo-realistic images, ChatGPT for content synthesis, and other transformative applications in music, voiceover, and video creation. Participants will be grouped to brainstorm a product idea and utilize these AI tools to craft various elements of a product pitch, including text prompts, images, audio, and video clips, culminating in a collaborative creation of a 30-second video with the assistance of a professional editor. This exercise will culminate in a presentation session where each group showcases their project, competing for a prize based on the creativity and effectiveness of their pitch.

" At the Global Entrepreneurship Summit in November 2023, Dr. Michael Housman captivated our entrepreneurs with his expertise in generative artificial intelligence, illustrating its role as a pivotal force in digital innovation. He adeptly merged theory with practice, offering a framework for leveraging AI tools that resonated strongly with our audience. A highlight was the interactive workshop where, under Dr. Housman's guidance, we co-created a product pitch using generative AI, demonstrating its practical power and potential. His engaging approach not only enlightened but also inspired, making it clear why he's a highly recommended authority in the AI space. "

" I am sincerely grateful for the fantastic presentation Dr. Michael Housman delivered at our ILLT offsite. His insights into the world of AI were truly eye-opening - I think everyone in the room was completely blown away, and potentially slightly terrified too!! His passion and ability to communicate the concepts in such a clear and accessible manner really were inspiring, and despite the fact he was only with us virtually, the audience were captivated. It was a really solid foundation for the work we did in the afternoon on identifying further areas of our business that could benefit from the application of AI technology. "
