Next week, World Summit AI Americas 2019 will open its doors in Montreal to the major international players in Artificial Intelligence for two full days of heated discussions on AI, mind-boggling innovation, knowledge sharing and networking.

The industry buzz surrounding AI and deep learning along with the issues, controversies, benefits and adoption is increasing steadily everywhere. And with Montreal fast becoming an active hub for companies and start-ups in this field, what better place to launch the only inclusive event on AI for the entire American continent?  

Not only will it give a deeper insight into different strategic, technical and operational issues surrounding the technology, it provides opportunities for intense debate on a wide range of highly relevant topics that are making today’s headlines.

Top-level presentations from the corporate and academic worlds of artificial intelligence and deep learning populate an outstanding global program throughout the event, which takes place at the St-James Theatre, 265 rue St-Jacques, Montreal on April 10 and 11.

Just some tasters include a major focus on #AI4Good to make sure that technological methods like deep learning and machine learning are developed in a responsible way, use-case presentations, the importance of privacy and regulation of big data and much more.
