Attendees actually have an opportunity to interact with new AI technology at the event. Demos range from novelty, Mocktailer Mixer, that uses Google Assistant to mix drinks, to real world applications like MetaOptima. It sends skin scans to doctors or hospitals for analysis and early diagnosis of life-threatening skin conditions.

In between sessions, attendees visit the adult-friendly playground in the Garden area to network or let loose. An oversized teeter totter that blows bubbles is perfect for an informal one-on-one. Attendees can take a leisurely swing on beautiful, circular-shaped wood swings. Or an exciting ride on “top chairs” that spin 360° without dumping the rider! The playground is a huge hit.

After an amazing day of learning, Google Go North 2017 concludes with a cocktail hour where guest mix, mingle and talk AI.
