The CSAIL+Imagination in Action AI Summit 2024 was amazing! I connected with startups, enjoyed networking, and appreciated the well-organized, engaging sessions, making it an excellent experience.
Exciting to learn about AI's application in generalizing app components. Updates to MIT AppInventor and AI in education were particularly interesting, providing valuable insights and inspiration for attendees.
Seeing startups pitch and presenters discuss AI research was eye-opening. I learned a lot in an unfamiliar field and enjoyed the collaborative and engaging atmosphere.
Grateful for the focus on startup foundations and mindfulness in highlighting important processes like 'putting yourself out there,' maximizing event benefits, and providing valuable insights for all attendees.
Loved the diversity and inspiring content of the talks! The event featured holistic, TED-like presentations, not just paper presentations, making it engaging and inspiring.
