    The Future of Data Summit

    150 150 This Week in Machine Learning & AI Podcast

    In 1996, Bill Gates popularized the saying “content is king.” Twenty years later it’s data that’s king, and those able to harness it for better insights, predictions and experiences are the new kingmakers. To help give you a view into the next twenty years of data, and how to take advantage of it today, I’ve partnered with the team at Interop ITX to create the Future of Data Summit.

    This 2-day event will bring together noted experts and practitioners to discuss the future of enterprise data from a variety of technology perspectives. We’ll be exploring the innovation and opportunity being offered in areas such as, of course, ML, AI and cognitive services, but also IoT and edge computing, AR/VR, blockchain, algorithmic IT operations, data security and more. I’ve hand-picked the speakers to both inspire Summit attendees with a view into what’s possible, as well as provide practical insights into how to get there.

    Here’s our agenda for the Summit so far. I’ll be announcing additional speakers in the weeks to come.
