Future [of] Industries
Industries [of] Future
Apr 20 - San Francisco

This year's event will bring together some of today's biggest luminaries to discuss how machine learning is shaping the future of industries and creating industries of the future.

Over the course of the first two days (April 20th and 21st), more than 100 forward-thinking executives, leading technologists, respected academics, and active investors from around the globe will share insights on the state of industry and the state of AI, on gaps between business needs and on technical capabilities. With 1000s of professionals in attendance across 4 stages, we’ll explore opportunities for applying for new advances, and on the longer term, societal impacts of decisions made today.

The World's Smartest Minds

From Amazon to Zeta Venture Partners, we've got an insanely smart group of folks who will discuss where they see the Future of AI and the opportunities that have them excited.

Agenda

Every session offers actionable insights into the rapidly evolving AI landscape and its impact on business and society. The experts in each session will have a 1-on-1 conversation with a moderator for 15 minutes, followed by an audience Q&! as a group. The session design enables going deep with experts in MIT fashion, well beyond buzzwords and platitudes.
