Speak at Strata Data & AI

“The place of like minds, mind-blowing developments, and a glimpse of the way forward. Priceless.”

As a Strata Data & AI speaker, you'll be joining a lineup of the brightest minds in data. Michael Jordan, Hilary Mason, DJ Patil, Peter Norvig, Michael Stonebraker, Kira Radinsky, Geoffrey Moore, Matei Zaharia, Lily Cheng, and even former president Barack Obama have spoken at O'Reilly Strata Data and AI Conferences.

But you don't need to be well-known; we're looking for people with hard-won success stories (or illuminating cautionary tales). Rock-solid technical skills. Innovative research. Or proven best practices.

If you have a brilliant idea, we'll provide the stage.

And in 2020, we are introducing Katacoda Scenarios and Jupyter Notebook hands-on interactive courses in 90-minute, 1-day, and 2-day offerings. Our editors will work with you if you are interested in leading one of these interactive sessions.

See our Call for Proposals information page for more details.
