The only thing more exciting than the possibilities being created by artificial intelligence — are the ways we’re seeing communities come together to explore these opportunities!

Amplify Labs AI launched a series of AI meetups over the summer, designed to offer a collaborative platform where professionals across various sectors can share knowledge, insights, and experiences about AI. Our goal is to provide a safe space to share the ethical and practical applications of AI.

“We are excited at the potential that meetups like these have to transform Lansing’s tech scene,” said Dave Smith, CEO of Amplify Labs AI. “We can’t wait to see where this goes and the influence it will have on our local tech community in the coming months. Whether you’re an AI expert, a business owner interested in implementing AI in your operations, or simply curious about the possibilities this technology offers, our community AI Meetups promise to offer something for everyone.”

Our keynote speaker for the inaugural AI Tech Meetup in Lansing brought a unique perspective to the table. Jesse Flores of SuperWebPros shared that his interest in AI stems from its potential to enhance business productivity. He highlighted three key areas of technological advancement: Automation, AI, and API integration. These areas are crucial for driving innovation and growth, especially for tech-minded small businesses.

The audience, comprised of tech enthusiasts, programmers, developers, marketers, and others, added to the discussion in a round-table conversation focused on the practical implementation of AI technology. The group discussed how to enhance outcomes for customers, streamline internal operations, and the best methods to achieve these goals.

With AI technology quickly transforming the business landscape, community meetups and training opportunities like these will play a critical role in fostering a culture of innovation.

Amplify Labs AI is proud to lock arms with leading innovators in our community to provide these meetups, with businesses that include Foster Swift Collins & Smith, PC, mConnexions Marketing Agency, SuperWebPros, and Startup Grind Lansing.

“We are thrilled to have launched a platform that bridges the gap between AI and the local business community,” said Julie Holton, co-Founder of Amplify Labs AI and owner of mConnexions Marketing Agency. “Our first AI Tech Meetup allowed us to delve into the myriad ways artificial intelligence can enhance business operations, whether it’s through improved communication, innovative marketing strategies, or a more streamlined customer experience.”

The AI Tech Meetup in June marked the beginning of a series of monthly meetings aimed at fostering an ongoing dialogue and collaboration in the AI field. Next month’s discussions will include demonstrations of how AI can enhance communication, marketing strategies, and customer experiences. Attendees will also have the opportunity to network with local startups, tech experts, and AI innovators, creating a vibrant community focused on leveraging AI for business success.
