Announcing Gigaom AI 2017 in San Francisco, February 15-16

Since the coining of the term “Artificial Intelligence” in the 1950s, AI has always been the technology of tomorrow. For a while, it looked like it would always be the technology of tomorrow. But after enduring a number of “AI winters” we have finally arrived at “AI spring”. Artificial Intelligence is not only going to change everything, it is in the process of doing so right now.

Already the effects of AI on business are being felt. The tools that allow the power of artificial intelligence to be put to work in any enterprise are available, numerous, and quite affordable. No longer does a company need a large data science team to make AI work for them. And the tools are becoming more powerful every month.

It is against this backdrop that I am proud to announce an event we are putting on in San Francisco on February 15 & 16, 2017 called Gigaom AI. It is, as the name suggests, about how to use AI in your organization today. Some of the topics we be exploring include:

  • What enterprises can do to make sure they stay ahead of the curve
  • How companies not employing AI today can begin to do so
  • How different business units will use AI differently
  • Tactics for using AI for competitive advantage
  • How you can use AI to drive revenue and create better customer experiences
  • Ways to use your most valuable asset, your data, to move your business forward

In addition, we have announced six research reports about how to use AI today that will be released around the time of the event. These reports will cover a wide range of topics relating to AI and the enterprise, from AI platforms for IoT to using AI in sales and marketing. Our research reports are written by some of the best analysts in the industry and are designed to be concise and actionable.

The speaker lineup at Gigaom AI will primarily consist of practitioners, people who are using AI today, talking about ways you can implement AI in your organization today.

We are offering two types of tickets; both are heavily discounted for a while, until we announce more of the lineup. The first is a registration for the event itself. Normally $2995, right now it is $1495.

The second one is a VIP registration which includes all six of the AI reports, an invite to the special VIP dinners on the 14th and 15th, and a one-year membership to Gigaom Research, giving you access to our research library and event videos. The VIP registration, normally $4995, is being offered to you right now for $2995. Click here to register.

I hope to see you in San Francisco in February. These are exciting times in the world of technology.
