We invite you to join Our Ability, Inc. and Microsoft Corporation for an Artificial Intelligence (AI) Ideation event that will be held at Syracuse University on March 26, 2019. This co-planning event is a key step towards understanding the priorities of commercial enterprises, nonprofits, government, higher education, associations, business councils, and other stakeholders in the community.
