September 8, 2017
Ah, Autumn, that special time of year when the leaves change, the kids head back to school, and all the things you love are unceremoniously slathered with too much pumpkin flavoring. Autumn’s also one of the busiest seasons for industry events and we’re going to a whole slew of them this year. And if you’re going too, we’d love it if you stopped by. We’re nice and we love bragging about our software. And hey, at the very least, you’ll leave with a t-shirt. We’ve got some soft ones. Promise.
Here’s where we’ll be:
O’Reilly Artificial Intelligence Conference – Sept. 17-20, Hilton in San Francisco
While some AI events are about flashy implementations, O’Reilly takes a more useful, more practical approach. This conference is all about application, how AI is used in buiness, the freshest breakthroughs and tools, and real-world examples of how some of the most innovative and successful companies on the planet are using AI now and how they’ll use it in the future.
CrowdFlower will be exhibiting, so please stop by booth 107. Our Co-Founder and Chief Data Scientist Lukas Biewald will be speaking too. Come check out his talk on active learning and transfer learning on Wednesday, September 19th. Details are here.
AutoSens – Sept. 20-21, AutoWorld Museum in Brussels, Belgium
If you’re going to the world’s premier ADAS and autonomous vehicle show, we’ll see you there. AutoSens was created by engineers, for engineers and takes place in the gorgeous AutoWorld Museum in Belgium. We’ll be at booth 2 exhibiting how CrowdFlower’s platform can accelerate your vehicle perception project. We can give it gas, if you will. Stop by and we won’t steer you wrong [ed note: apologies for that].
The AI Summit – Sept. 27-28, Regency Center in San Francisco
If you believe that AI is the 4th industrial revolution, you’ll fit right in at the AI Summit. Some of the biggest names in tech attend every year and, with over 120 keynote speeches over just two days, there’s plenty to learn. This conference is business focused (it’s not open to academics and researchers, in fact) and features speakers from comanies like Uber, IBM, Facebook, eBay, AT&T, Google, and a whole lot more.
In fact, our CEO Robin Bordolli will be talking about the 7 Myths of AI on the 28th at 12:40 in Stream A. If you’re coming, check out Robin’s talk and stop by booth E16 to say hi.
International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV) – Oct. 24-27, Venice Italy
If you’re unlucky enough to be stuck in Venice, Italy at the end of October, chances are you’re going to the International Conference on Computer Vision. Or you’re on a romantic vacation. Or both. None of our business. But we’ll be at ICCV this year, showing off our image annotation and computer vision chops. We’ll update this post when we have details about our booth number.
Open Data Science Conference West (ODSC West) – Nov. 2-4, Hyatt Regency SF Airport
We’ve been going to ODSCs for a while now and it’s one of our favorite events every year. ODSC focuses on, you guessed it, open data and data projects for the public good, but also touches on tools, insights, and actionable trends in the field. There are both talks and workshops at ODSC and it’s a great place to get some hands-on training and stay up to date on the state of the art.
Machine Learning Conference (MLConf) – Nov. 10, Hotel Nikko in San Francisco
MLConf is a streamlined, focused event entering its fifth year. Instead of multiple tracks and workshops, MLConf is a single track, single day event, packed with short, incisive presentations. We’ll be there exhibiting (details to come on booth number, etc.) and soaking up the brainpower in the audience.
We’ll update this post if anything changes or if we decide to make a few additional trips this year. We’ll also be hosting some machine learning classes for engineers later this year and we’ll share those as soon as we’re sure about the venue. Expect that info in the next week or so.
In the meantime? Please do stop by if you’re attending any of the aforementioned events. We’d love to say hi.
