SLASSCOM, Sri Lanka’s national chamber for the IT/BPM industry, through its AI Centre of Excellence, is set to launch the fourth iteration of the widely successful AI Asia Summit on the 23rd and 24th of November 2022. The AI Asia Summit 2022 will spread across two days and include keynotes, panel discussions, networking opportunities and in parallel to the summit, a hands-on workshop will take place on 25th of November 2022 which is hosted by AWS.
