BOSTON -- Breakthroughs in AI are already transforming how we do business in the real world with solutions that rely on machine intelligence. The O'Reilly Artificial Intelligence Conference (June 26-29 at the Hilton Midtown in New York City) explores the untapped opportunities of applied AI and how to put AI to work. AI Conference merges the latest discoveries in AI with the technical training necessary to apply hands-on solutions to real-world business applications.


"While AI tools and solutions continue to evolve rapidly, many companies are already able to utilize artificial intelligence to solve critical business problems. We are beginning to see companies optimize existing tools and technologies to turn the latest trends in AI into practical solutions. A decade from now, we may be saying that all businesses are AI businesses," says Ben Lorica, chair of AI Conference and O'Reilly's chief data scientist.
