Our signature event on artificial intelligence and business leadership

AI is the new electricity, powering the systems that drive our economy and the applications that drive our lives.

EmTech Digital 2020 examines the promise and perils of artificial intelligence as it changes our world at an unprecedented rate.

MIT Technology Review returns to the West Coast for its signature conference on artificial intelligence, hosting leaders from academia, enterprise, and government as we examine amazing advances in AI and hear from industry leading research labs. The program will dig into the capabilities and commercial applications of these technologies and provide a deeper understanding of AI’s growing economic and social impact on organizations and industries around the world.

Past guests have included leaders such as Andrew Ng, Chief Scientist of Baidu; Fei-Fei Li, Chief AI Scientist at Google Cloud; Rohit Prasad, VP and Head Scientist at Amazon Alexa AI; and Harry Shum, Microsoft Artificial Intelligence and Research Executive Vice President.

New for 2020 is the AI Strategy Studio, a pre-conference insight session where attendees can learn from leading organizations about how they have integrated AI into their processes, products, and services. Additional registration required.
