New York City is a bustling place full of people doing things. It is hard to say exactly what they are doing, but they are doing it with purpose. The conference center where the AI Summit event was held was really rather astoundingly large. At 5,000 people the AI Summit was the smaller conference in the building. A produce group had 30,000 people in attendance for a really large conference. That conference was bigger than a lot of small towns in America. Preparing to attend an event that was so large took a bit of reading and learning about who was attending. They had special areas for the speakers to rest from the crowds. Initially, I did not think that was going to be important, but it was nice to sit down for a bit and enjoy being out of the crowd. Overall the conference noise levels for the different speaking areas made things difficult to hear from time to time, but the people were great and a lot of them know a ton about artificial intelligence and machine learning.
Break — Here are some stream of consciousness thoughts about my flight
Two hours and twenty four minutes stand between me and the end of this flight. Right now I just booted up National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation from the airline movie list. My Pixelbook Go is actually displaying two different browser windows split down the middle vertically. On the left is this word document and on the right is a browser with the movie playing. The one thing that I forgot at the state of this trip was my set of Bose noise canceling headphones. Right now I have a wired headset plugged in utilizing a USB Type-C dongle. This set of Bose sport headphones are not in any way noise canceling. This is the first set of flights I have been on in a long time where the background noise is present. It is a lot louder than I remember.
