About us




A global tech and science strategy group focused on AI4Good operating in healthcare, education, STEM and government / strategic level Artificial Intelligence.

We connect the global AI ecosystem from Enterprise to BigTech, Startups, Investors and Science.

We unite large global enterprises to AI technology, academics to researchers, startups to investors, talent to corporates, data scientists to clinicians.

We own the world’s largest and most active AI community of over 220,000 in 160+ countries and boast 20 years of experience in technology and large scale festival style summits. We are aligned with the United Nations sustainable development goals and our “why” is to ensure that emerging technology is inclusive, equitable and safe.


Inspired Minds founding ethos is to make AI available to all economics, countries and cultures and to promote AI for the greater good. We focus on emerging technologies and build communities to ensure that they are developed and adopted in ways that are inclusive and equitable, so that the technologies we create work for all of us, not just a privileged few.

Our events and projects are reflective of this – we are at the forefront of not just discovering the world’s issues but defining the solutions. They are structured and aligned with the UN SDGs and each event is focused on specific strategic outcomes both in terms of content and the world leaders who participate. Featuring an elite line up of speakers, sponsors, ambassadors and delegates.

Our events are more than a strategic gathering of the economic, government and academic elite – they are unfailing fun. We chose the best venues, feature a fun line up of demos, workshops and music that results in two days of dynamic , whirlwind dialog , networking and collaboration. Our content is consistently unrivalled , thought provoking and timely while always aligned to the world arena.



Ada-AI is non-profit organization and global community working to ensure that AI and other emerging technologies are developed and adopted in ways that are inclusive and equitable. Our mission is to foster greater participation and representation in AI so that the technologies we use work for all of us, not just a privileged few.
