Do you dream in algorithms?

Have you ever tried to teach your dog to sit using a machine-learning training model?

If so, then you are just the type of person who should join us at PHLAI, or second-annual conference exploring advances, challenges and unique use-cases in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.

When we hosted the first PHLAI last August two things became immediately clear. First, Philadelphia is becoming a hotbed of AI talent; and second, there is a ton of pent-up demand among Philly-based AI and ML technologists to meet and share their work.

For months after the last PHLAI, we heard from attendees who were eager to present at the next one, so we decided to make it an annual event. If you’re in town Sept. 20, come join us at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Attendance is free and we’ve got an awesome lineup of speakers including:

  • Dr. Javid Huseynov, Principal Data Scientist at IBM
  • Dr. Vijay Kumar, Nemirovsky Family Dean at the Penn Engineering
  • Fraser Stirling, Senior Vice President of Devices & Advanced AI Systems at Comcast Cable
  • Igor Halperin, Research Professor of Financial Machine Learning at NYU Tandon School of Engineering
  • Traci Gusher, Data & Analytics Principal at KPMG

Find all the details you need on the PHLAI site.

We hope to see you there!
