Building The World’s Top AI Industry Community - Lessons From Ai4 Posted on : Aug 01 - 2020

When it comes to artificial intelligence, and technology in general, we as a society are often guilty of thinking of it as separate from humanity. However, AI and humanity are of course intricately entwined, as AI is built by humans. Just as the saying goes, “no man is an island,” the same can be said of what we build.

Artificial intelligence (AI) has now permeated all sectors of business - and for good reason.

Across multiple industries, difficult or expensive tasks can be automated by AI/ML and, as a result, catapult even failing businesses into success. AI boasts a seemingly infinite list of applications - from improving customer experience to curing sleep disorders.

However, as the use of artificial intelligence rises, so does the need for cross-industry communication on the topic.

Ai4 is unique and worth high creates a bridge between industries, leaders, and technologists. The company provides a common framework for what AI means to both enterprise and the future of our globe as we transition into a new era of responsible human-machine collaboration.

One attendee, senior manager at The Aldo Group, commented on the benefits of this approach stating, “I gained great insights into how my peers and competitors are leveraging AI & ML.”

Ai4 was started by co-founders Marcus Jecklin and Michael Weiss as a small 350-person AI for financial services conference at a hotel in Brooklyn, NY. Since then, it has grown to be the top community for industry professionals seeking to learn about artificial intelligence.

Ai4 convenes thousands of people each year and reaches tens of thousands more through offline and online events, AI enterprise trainings, AI blogs and newsletters, AI matchmaking programs, and an AI jobs board.

Ai4 2020 (originally scheduled to take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, now taking place digitally) promises to be an incredibly impactful event.

By gathering leaders of enterprise from across industry, government organizations, disruptive startups, investors, research labs, academia, associations, open source projects, media and analysts, Ai4 is creating the largest and most influential venue for AI-related idea-sharing, commerce, and technological progress.

Speakers for this years event include Salahuddin Khawaja, Managing Director - Automation / Global Risk, Bank of America Merrill Lynch; Stephen Wong, Chief Informatics Officer, Houston Methodist; Ameen Kazerouni, Head of ML/AI Research and Platforms, Zappos; Barret Zoph, Staff Research Scientist, Google Brain; Meltem Ballan, Data Science Lead, General Motors.
