GET READY FOR FUTURE OF AI 2019

JOIN ISRAEL’S LEADING CONFERENCE ON AI

 

Following the success of our first edition, Future of AI 2018, we are happy to present Future of AI 2019.

Future of AI 2018 was an incredible event that surpassed all expectations. In its first edition, it brought together 1,250 leaders from the AI ecosystem: entrepreneurs, CXOs, investors, AI experts and tech professionals from the world’s leading tech companies, startups and VCs. With 4 stages, 50 sessions, 95 speakers and 25 exhibitors, the first Future of AI was an epic, inspirational event.

Why are we so excited about AI? Because for decades, humanity fantasized of a future with intelligent machines: autonomous vehicles, personal assistants, smart factories, robots that will make our lives easier, safer, and better, etc. Recent developments are turning this fantasy into reality. AI is beginning to transform multiple industries such as finance, healthcare, retail, transportation, media, and more, and is expected to generate $60 billion in revenue by 2025.

We created Future of AI to be the first of its kind event in Israel, showcasing the latest innovations, technologies and business models in AI and bringing together the leading startups, investors, developers and tech giants for a chance to explore, learn and network together.
