About Event


AI is eating software! Come network with entrepreneurs and leaders inventing the future of AI: from autonomous vehicles, to drug discovery, to efficient generative AI platforms.  Join the Fireside chat, meet Pear's AI portfolio, and discover the biggest opportunities in AI today. 

Featuring a fireside chat with Hussein Mehana, SVP engineering at Cruise!

We'll be at Playground Global in Palo Alto (380 Portage Ave). Unfortunately, Playground does not allow outside food but we will have plenty of drinks and snacks in their micro-kitchen.


Hussein is currently the Senior VP of AI and ML, leading the development of AI and ML teams to deliver on Cruise's vision of making autonomous vehicles a reality. He has pioneered cutting-edge AI and ML systems from the lab to market working at Google, Facebook, and Microsoft.
