BE PART OF THE FUTURE OF AI/ML IN BUSINESS

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