O'Reilly Launches Artificial Intelligence Conference

Program Presents Leaders in Applied AI

SEBASTOPOL, CA--(Marketwired - July 07, 2016) - The inaugural O'Reilly Artificial Intelligence Conference explores the real-world opportunities of applied AI on September 26 and 27, 2016, in New York City.

O'Reilly Media founder and CEO Tim O'Reilly says that the explosion of intelligent software has just begun. Companies and developers working on applied AI require a different kind of knowledge than the research presented by existing academic conferences. The O'Reilly AI Conference fills that need with deeply practical sessions on AI today -- how to implement and interact with AI, use cases, and best practices -- as well as inquiries into the future of intelligence engineering.

Peter Norvig and Tim O'Reilly serve as honorary program chairs for the first O'Reilly AI conference, with Ben Lorica and Roger Chen as program chairs. They have announced the conference program, which features the brightest mind in applied AI.

Notable speakers include:

  • Yann LeCun, Facebook
  • Oren Etzioni, Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence
  • Gary Marcus, Geometric Intelligence
  • Pieter Abbeel, UC Berkeley
  • Naveen Rao, Nervana
  • Aparna Chennapragada, Google
  • William ("Bill") Dally, Stanford University
  • Guruduth Banavar, IBM
  • Babak Hodjat, Sentient Technologies
  • Pete Warden, TensorFlow
  • Lili Cheng, Microsoft
  • Hilary Mason, Fast Forward Labs
  • Urs Muller, NVIDIA
  • Peter Norvig, Google
  • Tim O'Reilly, O'Reilly Media

O'Reilly AI brings developers wanting to investigate the latest AI research and learn how to implement AI in real projects together with business people seeking to understand the impact AI will have on their work, ways their businesses can use AI, and what changes AI will bring to the competitive landscape.

Advance registration prices apply until July 22. A limited number of media passes also remain available. For more information, or to request an interview, contact maureen@oreilly.com, and follow #OReillyAI for more news and ideas.
