“A decade from now, will we be saying that all businesses are AI businesses?” – Ben Lorica

Discover the untapped opportunities of applied AI

The brightest minds in artificial intelligence will gather in New York to share how to implement AI in real world projects. Join us as we explore the future of AI—and how to get there from here.

The O’Reilly Artificial Intelligence Conference call for speakers is open

Underneath all the AI hype, real breakthroughs are happening—and obstacles to applied AI are being overcome—allowing AI developers to create software that doesn’t just do what it’s told, but has the ability to anticipate the needs of its users through a combination of pattern recognition, knowledge, planning, and reasoning.

Enterprise bots are emerging to participate in conversations and carry out repetitive tasks. Deep learning toolkits are becoming essential tools for software engineers and data scientists. Frameworks are being developed that promise point-and-click development of intelligent conversational interfaces to relatively unsophisticated developers.

There is a growing—and urgent—need for information on applied AI, as opposed to the kind of research presented at academic conferences. That's why we've created the O'Reilly Artificial Intelligence Conference, bringing the growing AI community together to explore the most essential and intriguing topics in intelligence engineering and applied AI.

Do you have AI experience to share? We’re looking for groundbreaking research, compelling use cases, rock-solid technical skills, tear-downs of successful AI projects and dissections of failures—and maybe one or two truly crazy ideas that just might change the world. Send your best ideas for a chance to be on stage in front of the brightest minds in the AI community.

See our tips for a good proposal and the list of topics we are most interested in, then submit your proposal ASAP. The deadline is January 18.

Important Dates:

  • Call for Participation closes: January 18, 2017
  • All proposers notified: By February 2017
  • Registration opens: February 2017
