About Event


Vancouver Connector’s mission is to connect people in the city with shared values and beliefs so that they can do more together.

This Vancouver A.I. Connector event connects tech professionals in Vancouver who hold the following shared beliefs:

  • We see A.I. as the future

  • The prospect of that future excites us

  • We play an active role in shaping that future

If these beliefs resonate with you, don’t miss an opportunity to surround yourself with like-minded individuals, collaborate with the best AI minds in the city, and become actively involved in the A.I. revolution!

Beyond YouTube, he actively shares insights and tips on coding, AI, and tech career development across various social media channels with 2+ million total followers. 

Ahmad Awais is an award-winning open-source engineering leader, founder & CEO of ⌘ Ex VP of DX and Google Developers Advisory Board founding member. His software serves millions of developers. The code he wrote went to Mars. “What an awesome example for developers,” said Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft — featuring Awais’s code contribution to the NASA Ingenuity Mars mission.

YK will be presenting on "Introduction to Custom GPTs and RAG (Retrieval-Augmented Generation)" and Ahmad on "Computing Primitive in LLM Space | Building your custom AI models". So feel free to bring your laptops to follow along or take notes! 

I wanted to give a special shoutout to Matthew Housser and Convergence for allowing us to use their space.

Who should attend?

Entrepreneurs, startup founders, software engineers, investors that currently invest in AI or wish to start, corporate innovators looking to incorporate AI into their existing products or services, students and academics, and anyone interested in discussing AI – whether for their career or simply out of sheer curiosity!

Discord Group

Prior to the event, you will be added to a private Discord group so that you can have a chance to introduce yourself and potentially setup meetings for the event. Come event time, you should expect a warm crowd and some familiar faces! The discord community also serves as a persistent avenue of valuable resources and connections for all things A.I. in Vancouver, beyond the termination of the event.

Event Format

The goal of the event is to inspire collaboration between like-minded individuals, so the format will be a little unorthodox.

  • Presentation lectures: panelists will each give a presentation on their domain of expertise related to A.I.

  • Panel Discussion: a diverse set of speakers from different backgrounds will share their insights on various topics, while the audience also participates

  • Open Floor: attendees will have a chance to roam around the room and speak to other individuals

  • Post-Event: event follow-ups will be posted on a dedicated Discord event channel, including photos and any other media

Don't Miss Out!

This is unlike any other tech event happening in the city right now. The goal is to bring together like-minded individuals so they can do more together. So come with your learner mindset and drive to create something wonderful together. The future is calling!
