I’m giving two presentations tomorrow at the OpenSim Community Conference.
First, I’m giving my usual state of the hypergrid talk at 3:30 p.m. Pacific time. I’ll be doing a roundup of this year’s top news and OpenSim statistics.
Then, at 4 p.m. Pacific, I’ll be talking about how generative AI will change content creation and coding.
I have been covering AI quite a bit lately, especially for CIO magazine. You can see all my latest AI articles here. As part of that, I’ve been talking to CEOs, CIOs and other senior executives at companies around the world, as well as leading experts on AI and the vendors building the technology. It doesn’t hurt that I have a degree in mathematics and can read the research papers. My own undergraduate research, funded by the NSF, was about a dynamical systems approach to differential equations. If you want more AI, and want to see me in the physical world, I’ll be the keynote speaker at the 2024 Data and AI Summit in March.
About the conference
It’s the eleventh annual OpenSimulator Community Conference, celebrating the community and development of the OpenSimulator opensource software. It will feature over 70 speakers leading presentations, workshops, panel sessions, and social events across the diversity of the OpenSimulator user base.
This year’s conference kicks off yesterday with networking events and today there will be art tours and music performances. The conference then features two days of dynamic presentations on Saturday and Sunday–including a hypergrid shopping tour and a closing night party on Sunday. There will also be more community events and tours following the conference weekend.
Attending the conference event is free, but those wishing to financially support the conference can still sponsor or participate in its crowdfunder campaign when registering. Participants in the crowdfunding cCampaign will receive a variety of thank-you gifts depending upon their level of participation, including conference VIP seating and the ability to have a virtual expo booth at the event. The conference sponsorship or crowdfunder contribution is tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law for US residents.
