Conversations at the cutting edge of creative problem solving, artificial intelligence & business.
How can you turn academic theory into commercial can-do?
This year's CreAtIve Comm theme explores how CebAI and other business owners have taken their learning and research and turned it into real-world applications, with an emphasis on artificial intelligence supporting human creativity. It will be a chance to learn more about the journey of CebAI's spin-offs and products such as Sport Sparks and JECT.AI.
