UCLA Anderson’s Technology Business Association (AnderTech) and Entrepreneur Association present the 2024 Embracing AI Summit. We bring together leaders from the tech and business sectors to explore the profound impact of artificial intelligence on our world today, and its transformative potential for the future.

We’ll dissect and evaluate the implications of artificial intelligence across three expert panels: investors fueling the dreams of tomorrow, innovators sculpting the application layer of AI and redefining the boundaries of possibility, and industry practitioners integrating these advancements into the fabric of society.

Following the panels, attendees are invited to a reception where they can network with panelists and fellow attendees.

Together, we aim to forge a future where AI is not simply a tool, but a catalyst for unprecedented growth, ethical innovation and inclusive progress. We invite you to join us in shaping a world where the potential of AI is embraced by all, for all.
