Welcome to 2020! We may not have flying cars yet, not to mention flying houses, and the teleports still aren’t the most popular means of transportation. The reality of 2020 and the direction where the technology went differ quite a lot from what shaped our imagination in the XXth century! Instead of pushing the limits of our physical capabilities, we headed towards pushing the limits of our minds. And this is exciting! Predictive models are able to process tremendous amounts of data to make accurate predictions about the future or detect anomalies (e.g. diseases) at a very early stage, detect fraudulent transactions to protect our finances, and allow companies to provide exceptional customer experience with personalization. What is shaping this reality and helping us achieve it is AI.

In this article, we present some of the AI and machine learning events to attend in 2020 – to stay up to date with one of the hottest technology trends of the past years, know where we head, and actively participate in this process. The list will be updated, so stay tuned!
