In advance of the conference, O’Reilly will release a report, “How Organizations are Sharpening their Skills to Better Understand and Use AI,” that explores the data- and AI-related topics technology experts are most interested in. The report, authored by Lorica, found that overall content usage across all topics, grew 8 percent from 2018 to 2019 (January to July). Among the fastest-growing topics were those central to building AI applications: machine learning (up 58% from 2018), data science (up 53%), data engineering (up 58%) and AI itself (up 52%), indicating that companies and individuals are taking AI training and adoption seriously.
“AI is poised to transform every industry, and as the technology moves beyond research, implementation becomes increasingly important," said Lorica. “Through our partnership with Intel, the AI Conference presents a unique opportunity for organizations to identify opportunities and develop strategies to practically and profitably apply AI systems to their businesses today.”
O’Reilly and Intel will also host the second annual AI Business Summit, taking place in conjunction with the conference.
