OR63: AI and Machine Learning

Artificial intelligence (AI) is becoming a huge opportunity as well as a significant concern for organisations today.

Combining the unprecedented levels of data generated in the modern world, the use of high-performance computing (e.g. distributed computing, GPUs/TPUs, etc.) and new innovations such as deep learning, AI has reached something of a golden age in recent years.

We're now looking for OR professionals, data scientists, professors, researchers, analysts, engineers, etc., to present at this event. Submit your 300-word presentation summary on AI and machine learning by the now extended deadline of the 25th of June to join our expert OR63 speakers!
