OUR STORY

The AI & Machine Learning Strategies Summit is the largest event exclusively focussed on AI and ML business use. This event is known for being highly practical, featuring real use case studies to help you take the theory out of AI and ML. Content has been developed for both beginners and organizations that are taking the next steps to build on their initial AI or ML program.

Strategy Institute has been in business for 25+ years, has produced at over 450 conferences and catered to more than 50,000 attendees. We act as an independent conference organizer, with an emphasis on high quality research and lead generation to meet the needs of our customers.

OUR COMMUNITY

Ever attend an event where you feel like you’re lost in a crowd? Not at the AI & Machine Learning Strategies Summit! We deliberately design the program to encourage you to meet with like-minded people – every day of the event. You’ll do so at a number of small working groups, industry workshops, peer-led breakouts, roundtables and much more! You’ll come as an individual attendee – but you’ll leave as part of the the AI & Machine Learning Strategies Summit community!
