THANK YOU FOR ATTENDING FUTURE OF AI 2018

WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AT OUR FUTURE EVENTS

 

Future of AI 2018 was an incredible event that surpassed all expectations. In its first edition, Future of AI 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.

We hope you met lots of new people who are relevant to your business or career, and learned a few new things about the technologies, trends and companies that will revolutionize multiple industries.

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.
