About O’Reilly Strata Data & AI Conference

The worlds of data and AI are converging. So we've brought the O'Reilly Strata Data and AI Conferences together—covering two of the most pressing technological trends of the decade and giving you access to the full breadth of both programs.

This is where cutting-edge science and new business fundamentals intersect. It's a deep dive into emerging data and ML techniques and technologies. You'll dissect case studies, develop new skills through in-depth tutorials, share emerging best practices, and imagine the future.

Program chairs Rachel Roumeliotis of O'Reilly and entrepreneur Alistair Croll create programs that cover the entire range of data tools and technologies, from building a foundational data infrastructure to productionizing ML pipelines to iterating AI projects.

The O'Reilly Strata Data & AI Conference program also reflects challenges that have emerged. Get a fresh perspective on issues like:

  • Collaboration and building data teams
  • Emerging architecture & new interfaces
  • Ethics, bias, and privacy issues
  • Machine data
  • Natural language processing (NLP)
  • Preparing training data
  • Reproducibility
  • Security
  • And much more

It's now larger than ever, yet it's kept the informal, collegial spirit that makes it one of the best places to connect and collaborate.

Evan Wright
If you can only attend one event and want to maintain your edge in big data & machine learning, choose this one.

An excellent opportunity to learn about the emerging technologies, AI, big data, and analytical analysis. Thanks for providing so much learning in one place.

Strata is like Hogwarts for data engineers and data scientists.
