• Why AI Needs an Infrastructure Agenda

    600 Anton Blvd

    IDC has estimated that by 2019, 40% of digital transformation initiatives will use AI services and by 2021, 75% of enterprise applications will use AI. For this Meetup, we'll discuss how having an Infrastructure Agenda can help you be successful as you begin to undertake AI initiatives. We will look at recent hardware development trends for AI and how co-optimized design between hardware and software are accelerating the end to end AI lifecycle. Join us for a night of networking, AI and Infrastructure discussions. Look forward to seeing you there! Agenda: 6:00 - 6:15: Refreshments and networking 6:15 - 7:00: Why AI needs and Infrastructure Agenda 7:00 - 7:45: Accelerating the End to End AI Life-cycle 7:45 - 8:00: Wrap-up and networking PIZZA AND REFRESHMENTS WILL BE SERVED.
