The event, scheduled for March 27 at 5:30 p.m., will be held at the Invention to Innovation Center or I2C, 850 Ben Graves Drive at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.

Joshi encourages residents “not to miss your chance to forge valuable connections and stay ahead in the AI-driven future while you enjoy great food and drinks at the I2C.”
