AI Caramba: The Rise of A.I.

June 09, 2022 by Elio Grieco

July 11th, 2022, 6:00-9:00pm MST

Gateway Community College

July 11th will be a SWCSF hybrid meeting, virtual and on-site at Gateway Community College. As this is a "second monday" meeting it will have a slightly different format than our normal meetings.


  • 6:00 - 6:30pm: Networking and Food
  • 6:30 - 6:40pm: Meeting Start and Announcements
  • 6:40 - 7:00pm: Cyber Threat Updates by Erik Graham (probably)
  • 7:10 - 8:45pm: AI Caramba: The Rise of A.I.
  • 8:45 - 9:00pm: Wrap Up and Networking

Watch Party: AI Caramba: The Rise of A.I.

A group of industry experts in ML, AI, and cybersecurity watch and provide commentary on Eric Schmidt's appearance on Firing Line. What was said, was it accurate, and most importantly, what was left unsaid?

We'll also likely stray into other AI related topics such as:

  • Deep fakes in the wild.
  • The increasing fidelity of deep fakes via Neural Radiance Fields (NeRF) and other techniques.
  • Claims of AI sentience by Blake Lemoine.

This will be loosely styled after MST3K. While we are looking to provide interesting and accurate insights into what industry professionals think of such an interview, we're also having a little fun with this format. Feel free to join in during the meeting on Zoom and Keybase, or share your thoughts after the meeting.

Exact Location


The best place to park is in lot 5, followed by lots 4 and 6.

Yes, technically lot 5 is marked as restricted, but this event happens after hours in the summer. This is the least busy time of day and year for the college.

Gateway Parking Map


Free pizza and soft drinks will be provided to all attendees. If you have other preferences, Speedy Street Tacos is within walking distance, just past the East parking lot. There are also a few other restaurants within a short drive of the college.
