CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Dec. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, MIT Technology Review announced its annual west coast conference on emerging digital technologies, EmTech Digital 2020, which will take place March 23-25 at the Ritz-Carlton San Francisco. Part of the esteemed EmTech Event Series, the conference is the outlet's signature event on artificial intelligence (AI) and business leadership. This year, EmTech Digital will focus on trust; the most talked about issues in AI today - deepfakes, bias, explainability, privacy - all have trust as a common denominator. Establishing trust is a mandatory requirement for AI adoption. Those who forgo trust put their brand reputation at risk.
Speakers will empower executive decision-makers with ideas and inspiration to chart their path forward in the era of AI. Through a business results lens, the EmTech Digital program examines AI topics such as research, algorithms, convergence, workforce, and strategy.
The growing line-up of notable speakers includes:
Gary Marcus - RobustAI | Founder and CEO
Frida Polli - pymetrics | Founder and CEO
Francesca Rossi - IBM Research | AI Ethics Global Leader
Richard Socher - Salesforce | Chief Scientist
Vincent Vanhoucke - Google Brain | Principal Scientist
New this year, attendees can participate in the AI Strategy Studio, a pre-conference insight session to hear from and network with leadership executives from organizations such as Walmart, JPMorgan Chase & Co, DHL, and LinkedIn about how they have integrated AI into their processes, products, and services. Additional registration is required.
Intel, a technology leader shaping the data-centric future with computing and communications technologies that serve as the foundation of the world's innovations, will serve as Presenting Partner at this year's conference. BIGfish Communications, a public relations agency specializing in technology and innovation, will return as Media Partner.
