AAMA Speaker Series Panel on AI and Machine Learning

AAMA Speaker Series Panel on AI and Machine Learning

Join AAMA For A Panel Discussion on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning


The age of the human computer has accelerated with companies like Google and Facebook investing billions of dollars into artificial intelligence (AI). Visionary developers are feeding large amounts of data into software systems to recognize new patterns faster than the individual mind. The speed of change and intelligent behavior is helping top industry practitioners discover how the latest innovations can create a positive impact on AI technologies.
Among this rapidly growing evolution of AI and machine learning, Asia is posed to be a leader in the field as published research surpasses that being done in the United States. Yet the sharing of knowledge between Asia, U.S. and the world has been slow to materialize due to language barriers. How can thought leaders in Silicon Valley help the AI community begin a global dialogue to further intelligent technology?


Join AAMA for an exciting panel discussion as we learn how large enterprises are implementing real-world solutions to improve AI and machine learning technologies.

  • The latest trends in natural language processing
  • The new technologies and space that will become the AI of tomorrow
  • How are people using new vision technology in their everyday lives
  • What investors are looking for from companies seeking to expand AI innovations
  • Who corporations are looking at when acquiring new technology
  • What CEOs are doing to develop creative strategies technology teams can build on

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear present case studies and practical applications from CEOs, innovators, and investors as they discuss new AI technologies and emerging trends in both Silicon Valley and the world.
