The founding story behind Beyond Machine (rebranded from M.I.E)
Beyond Machine (rebranded from M.I.E) was spawned from Lele and Irene constant frustration during the founding of their AI startups.

Irene wanted to tackle the challenges of visual recognition.
It quickly became apparent that there was a need for a more developed community an outlet for media around Machine Intelligence. After running a fruitful and inspiring Evening Summit, they decided to take Beyond Machine. to the next level, founding a media company.focus on the training, re-education, and networking in the field of AI and innovative technology. Irene decided to leave FindEssence, the first company she co-founded and push forward the growth of Beyond Machine.
Beyond Machine’s mission: To connect people in AI industry globally, bringing profound and engaging content and to start a conversation about job substitution issues.
