Sessions on the Metaverse, AI implementation and emerging tech trends

Since the 1950s, there have been several AI summers and winters. Right now, it is summer again thanks to deep learning, neural networks, the explosion in data and exponential advances in computing power that are propelling the development and use of AI.

It is no exaggeration to say that the future of business is artificial intelligence – a tagline, by the way, that was created by OpenAI’s large language model GPT-3. How times have changed.

AI Business is hosting a comprehensive yet approachable AI conference in Austin, Texas from Nov. 2 to 3. The summit offers a range of sessions and workshops for people at various stages of AI understanding and implementation, marrying neatly with the Internet of Things and robotics.
