As discussed in the first article, the CHPTA is hosting a Hall of Fame Induction Luncheon and Speaker Event on November 2, 2023 at the Club House Event Space within the Royal Woodbine Golf Club, 195 Galaxy Blvd in Etobicoke (near Toronto Pearson Airport).  This event is open to all.  

The Hall of Fame luncheon and inductions will take place first, but will be followed with two excellent speaker presentations that will be covering topics important to businesses right now.  This will include how companies can use AI to help their employees and improve business results as well as an economic review and forecast by one of Canada’s top economists.  

Pricing is available for the full event (luncheon & speakers) or speaker presentations only but we hope you can join us for the full afternoon to help us honour the latest inductees and their significant contributions to our industry.

About the Speaker:

Mishkin Berteig‘s lifelong fascination with learning, intelligence, and education started in 1979. His passion for artificial intelligence was ignited by reading books like “The Emperor’s New Mind” and “Gödel, Escher, and Bach”. He experimented with early AI concepts by creating simple software simulations of artificial life and implementations of the back-propagation algorithm for neural networks in the late 80’s.

In the late ’90s, Mishkin worked on NLP tools for website analysis and later developed two industry-specific expert systems: “Scrum Insight” and the “Real Agility Culture Assessment”. Throughout his professional life, he has been involved in various AI/ML projects.
