    Techstars present: "Startup Weekend LatinX"​

    September 29 - October 1

    This event is part of a 5-city Latinx in Tech campaign going on throughout Hispanic Heritage Month, and geared towards the Latinx community. Imagine what could happen if we gathered 500 entrepreneurially-minded Latinxs and allies over 54 hours, in 5 different cities, to identify and design technology solutions to problems disproportionately facing the U.S. Latinx community? What if we facilitated mentorship by some of the most talented technologists, business innovators, and prominent investors? Join us in this special edition of Startup Weekend NYC and help us prove that we can all learn, work, and create together in order to deliver better outcomes.

    Large-scale data-driven solutions (Big Data) has been around for decades and we are seeing greater emphasis on how companies can use it to increase speed, efficiency and decision making capability. Yet, with all the benefits of using Big Data tools and analytics, there could be a threat of bias in its use and application.

    Join us for a panel discussion, moderated by Alex Martins, head of Data Science Solutions at Bloomberg, on the limitations of Artificial Intelligence, and how those limitations can impact underrepresented communities.
