AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Austin-based Alegion, a human intelligence platform for Artificial intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) initiatives, has announced that CEO Nathaniel Gates has been invited to be a panelist at a December 14 conference entitled "Artificial Intelligence in Austin – Innovations, Startups, and Exits."
The event, which begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 1 p.m., is being hosted by Navidar, an investment banking firm that provides businesses and investors in dynamic industries with strategic merger and acquisition advice, capital raising solutions, and corporate advisory services. It will be held at the Capital Factory at 701 Brazos Street in Austin.
"AI represents a seismic shift in the way humans interact with information, resulting in efficiencies and better decisions," according to Navidar. "To shed light on the various approaches, Navidar has assembled top Austin-based AI pioneers."
Gates fits the criteria of a pioneer. He is career technologist and entrepreneur, whose work passion relies in the Cloud Computing and Cloud Labor spaces.
Having co-founded Alegion in 2012, Gates has presided over the company's rapid ascension as the premier provider of highly structured data for the development and implementation of AI and ML initiatives. Prior to Alegion, he founded Cloud49, a successful cloud computing solutions provider focused on the public sector.
"This conference demonstrates that Austin has arrived as a powerful hub for companies that serve the AL industry," said Gates. "This conference will not only be instructive for those who are just becoming familiar with the AI industry, but also those of us who live and work in this space and may not be aware that they have potential partners a few miles down the road."
