This inaugural Americas Summit is being delivered by the organisers of World Summit AI, the global series made up of the world’s largest and most active AI community of over 40,000 members from 161 countries worldwide. The WSAI Global community gathers every October at World Summit AI in Amsterdam to set the global AI agenda and has quickly become the place where the most influential community of thought leaders and decision makers in artificial intelligence implementation meet the integrators, adopters and end-users of advanced solutions in this brave new world.
Debate at the World Summit AI Americas 2019 will cover the real issues and challenges surrounding the implementation of AI, deep and machine-learning solutions alongside demonstrations of practical case studies and in-depth workshops on topics ranging from privacy and regulation to infrastructure improvement. It is the only inclusive event for the entire American continent that will give stakeholders across the entire AI value chain a deeper insight into different strategic, technical and operational issues surrounding technological adoption and systems implementation.
A packed program
In addition to gaining groundbreaking insights from across business and science, the World Summit AI audience will be privy to hot-off-the-press AI announcements and have the opportunity to participate in lively panel discussions, tech workshops, and more. As always, in conjunction with Ada-AI, there is a major focus on #AI4Good to make sure that technological methods like deep learning and machine learning are developed in a responsible way that makes the world a better place.
More specifically, some of the headliner and use-case presentations include topics such as ‘Using machine learning to build explainable, transparent and accountable algorithms’; ‘How can enterprises achieve the creative potential of AI?’; ‘Redefining the relationship between humans and technology using natural language processing to deliver a great conversational UI’.
The importance of privacy and regulation is another highlight, alongside discussion on one of the hot topics affecting the information age of big data - How to get past the problem of data fragmentation to get access to good quality data at scale. Public sector AI implementation is also covered with an exclusive look at lessons learned from the Montreal Declaration on the Responsible Development of Artificial Intelligence and a discussion on how government can leverage the use of AI to improve a country’s infrastructure.
