Conference
“AlphaGo – A New Era of Artificial Intelligence”
May 26, 2017 r. at the Warsaw Google Campus

We invite you to a conference on AlphaGo and the broader topic of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Developed by Google DeepMind, AlphaGo is a computer program designed to demonstrate the potential of AI technology.

konrerencja: AlphaGo Nowa Era Sztucznej Inteligencji

AlphaGo's stunning victory over Lee Sedole, the game’s most successful player ever, represents a milestone in the development of artificial intelligence.

This event has not only contributed to a wider dissemination of information about the most advanced research on Artificial Intelligence, but has also provided inspiration for numerous scientific and commercial ventures.

We are now witnessing discernible progress in AI, which is changing approaches to business. Scientists, engineers and programmers are creating software that far exceeds current standards. We can now see far more advanced anticipation of user and client needs through a combination of pattern recognition, knowledge, planning and reasoning.

If you are looking for ground-breaking research, inspirational case studies, the most advanced programming techniques, insight into the most recent AI projects, or maybe one or two crazy ideas that can change the world – this conference is definitely for you.
