AI Solutions to Real-world Challenges

BOSTON, MA–(Marketwired – May 19, 2017) – Forget the hype. Breakthroughs in AI are already transforming how we do business in the real world with solutions that rely on machine intelligence. The O’Reilly Artificial Intelligence Conference (June 26-29 at the Hilton Midtown in New York City) explores the untapped opportunities of applied AI and how to put AI to work. AI Conference merges the latest discoveries in AI with the technical training necessary to apply hands-on solutions to real-world business applications.

“While AI tools and solutions continue to evolve rapidly, many companies are already able to utilize artificial intelligence to solve critical business problems. We are beginning to see companies optimize existing tools and technologies to turn the latest trends in AI into practical solutions. A decade from now, we may be saying that all businesses are AI businesses,” says Ben Lorica, chair of AI Conference and O’Reilly’s chief data scientist.

  • Richard Socher, Salesforce
  • Suchi Saria, Johns Hopkins University
  • Doug Eck, Google Brain
  • Russ Salakhutdinov, Carnegie Mellon University
  • David Ferrucci, Elemental Cognition
  • Jim McHugh, NVIDIA
  • Naveen Rao, Intel
  • Tuomas Sandholm, Carnegie Mellon University

In addition to keynotes presentations, over 70 sessions and 12 tutorials explore some of the most promising applied deep learning and edge intelligence topics, such as:

  • Translating abstract AI into real numbers for business
  • Deep learning models for computer vision solutions
  • Natural language processing
  • Tensorflow
  • Using the cloud as an AI supercomputer
  • Scaling and productizing conversational AI
  • Affordable AI-capable products
  • Software and hardware breakthroughs for deep neural networks

Two-day training courses at AI Conference also offer an intense hands-on learning experience supported by a high level of instructor interaction. Training courses include “Deep Learning with Tensorflow,” “Natural Language Processing with deep learning,” “Neural networks for time series analysis using DeepLearning4J,” and “NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute Bootcamp.”

The O’Reilly AI Conference brings the growing AI community together, when the brightest minds in AI share their groundbreaking research, compelling use cases, technical skills, and teardowns of successful AI projects.
