CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, MIT Technology Review announces that its fifth West Coast conference on emerging digital technologies, EmTech Digital (www.emtechdigital.com), will take place at the St. Regis San Francisco, March 27-28, 2017. The annual conference convenes innovators, entrepreneurs, business leaders, and venture capitalists to examine the next wave of the digital revolution.
The focus of this year's conference is artificial intelligence and the impact it will have on nearly every industry. AI already affects our daily lives, powering search, social media, and smartphones and tracking personal health and finances, yet it's difficult to discern facts from hype. EmTech Digital does just that—giving attendees the business intelligence needed in this rapidly shifting landscape. The conference will continue pursuing the questions discussed at EmTech Digital 2016: What are the key technological developments? How will their commercialization affect you? What can you do right now to stay ahead?
EmTech Digital attendees will:
- Learn how to harness new technologies to gain a competitive business advantage—increasing revenue, ensuring security, making the best hires in a changing workforce.
- Gain clear business insights that help cut through the noise around artificial intelligence and big data in order to chart your strategy.
Featured speakers from the last EmTech Digital included Tye Brady, chief technologist at Amazon Robotics; Oren Etzioni, CEO of the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence; Manuela Veloso, University Professor and head of the Machine Learning Department at Carnegie Mellon's School of Computer Science; and Chris Urmson, past CTO for self-driving cars at Google.
