What does the future of Artificial Intelligence mean for you? For your business? For society as a whole?

The UK Government announced just this week, a new £1 Billion Drive Into Artificial Intelligence. “Artificial intelligence provides limitless opportunities to develop new, efficient and accessible products and services”, said Business Secretary Greg Clark.

For 2 days, we’re bringing together world leading researchers and industry pioneers to learn, discuss and explore the impact machine learning and deep learning algorithms will have on your business and across our daily lives.

With just over one month to go, we’re highlighting the 10 reasons not to miss the upcoming Machine Intelligence Summit, taking place in Hong Kong on 6-7 June.


Hear from Victor Lam, Deputy Government Chief Information Officer at the The Government of the HKSAR on their plans for integrating AI into their administration, and creating a digital frontier for building Hong Kong as a Smart City. Victor will map out development plans for the next 5 years to apply AI to improve people's quality of living, increase Hong Kong's attractiveness and sustainability, and enhance the effectiveness of city management.


How are machine learning methods being used in space? Hamed Valizadegan, Senior Machine Learning Scientist at NASA Ames Research Center will be sharing case studies and examples on how machine learning can help in imperfect scenarios. He will use efforts in life time prediction of Fine Guidance Sensors of Hubble Space Telescope as an example to demonstrate how little domain knowledge can help to develop effective machine learning models when the data availability is scarce.


As well as hearing from the Government of HK and NASA there will be talks from P&G, Alibaba, Google Brain, HSBC, DHL, DBS Bank, Mercedes-Benz, GE Digital and more world-renowned companies! Check out the full schedule here.


There will be over 15 different countries represented at the event, including attendees from South Korea, Japan, the USA, UK, Australia, China, France, Germany, Malaysia, Russia, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan and more! View some of the attending companies here.


Hear from over 30 speakers and industry leaders at the event on real-world applications of machine learning and deep learning technology including in the energy sector: ‘Using Big Data & AI to Optimise Wind Farm Performance’ from China Light & Power Holding; in logistics: ‘Customer Engagement with Multi-Channel AI Chatbots’ from DHL; in banking: ‘Speech Enabled NLP for Event Extraction’ from DBS Bank; and industrial automation: ‘End-To-End Speaker Recognition System’ from GE Digital & many more!


In addition to those topics, there is also a dedicated track on AI in Healthcare, exploring the latest advancements in machine learning research as well as applications in medicine and the healthcare sector, including: medical imaging, drug discovery, personalised medicine, and AI in mental healthcare.


Attend a practical workshop to dig deeper into how we should be organising data for machine learning models. An opportunity for you to ask questions specific to your business and your data strategy!


20+ talks on the main agenda covering the latest technological advancements including: Deep Representation Analysis Tools; Reinforcement Learning to Programme Recommendations; Speech Enabled NLP for Event Extraction; Machine Learning from Weak Supervision; and Crossmodal Understanding and Prediction for Cognitive Robots.
