One of the keys to digital transformation and continuous innovation is artificial intelligence—enabling the automation of just about everything. However, a survey from McKinsey found that “many organizations still lack the foundational practices to create value from AI at scale—for example, mapping where their AI opportunities lie and having clear strategies for sourcing the data that AI requires.”
Indeed, the actual rate of AI implementation may be lower than what all the hype around AI, machine learning, natural language processing and their complementary technologies would lead you believe. The thing is, the hype is well-deserved, and any company that wants to be competitive must be proactively developing and implementing the technology. One of the ways organizations and individuals can help close this gap is to attend one (or some) of the many AI- and ML-focused conferences being offered through the end of this year.
The following slideshow includes a list of fall and winter 2019 AI conferences that promise to help you learn about where artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data, and other emerging tech fields are headed as 2020 gets closer.
