What is ValleyML.ai?


Valley Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (ValleyML.ai) is the most active and important community of ML & AI Companies and Start-ups, Data Practitioners, Executives and Researchers in the Silicon Valley. We have more than 18,000 active members.ValleyML.ai bring together business leaders and applied machine learning and deep learning practitioners. We collaborate with other non-profit professional organizations such as ACM, IEEE Silicon Valley CS/CAS/CIS/SPS/SSCS/RAS Chapters and other AI related organizations bringing a series of regularly planned events, seminars, conferences, and workshops. We plan to cover the state-of-the-art advancements in AI technology. Attendees for Valley ML “State of AI and ML” and Boot Camps get IEEE Certificates for Professional Development Hours. AI is in its currently nascent form of Artificial Narrow Intelligence and is the third era of computing. AI is becoming omnipresent in our daily routines set to usher in Fourth Industrial Revolution with unprecedented scale of changes in how we work and live. Amplifying our human intelligence with AI has the potential of helping humanity flourish like never before, if we (humans!) correctly apply our wisdom to managing AI to keep the technology beneficial. In a series of regularly planned events, we plan to cover the state-of-the art advances in AI technology. Our current and previous sponsors include SEMI, Intel, Western Digital, Google, Facebook, Cadence, Xilinx.

We will send instructions to the attendees after the course on the form that need to be filled. An example of IEEE Certificate is provided here: IEEE Certificates guarantee that education program meets IEEE standards, and offers some of the most relevant content that engineers need to stay ahead. IEEE Certificates will help technical professionals:

  1. Gain a competitive advantage
  2. Update their knowledge and skills
  3. Build professional credibility
  4. Earn the CEUs/PDHs they need to keep their licenses current
A not-for-profit organization, IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity. Please see this https://www.ieee.org/education/certificates/ceus-faqs.html for more information on IEEE Certificates.
