Hype or not, AI is being applied in practically every industry. For example, what if you could glide through the airport with no passport or boarding pass? Well, that day is already here. We have been working hard with Finnair on facial recognition software to enable your face to be the only thing needed to board a plane. Oh, and Apple have just released iPhone X with Face ID and machine learning cores.

Artificial intelligence will change the business landscape and whether you like it or not, it will be starting to impact your life. Join us at the Brave New World, AI Applied Event and find out what can be applied now and what can we realistically expect from next couple of years.

The talk will be held at the dynamic office space in the Epicenter, Stockholm, where other tech forerunners such as Spotify and Google are working on cutting-edge tech for the forseeable future. So join the excitable buzz to become part of the ever-evolving technological landscape.

Fantastic Problems and Where To Find Them by Daryl Weir (@darylweir)

Machine learning and big data have been buzz words for years now, but how do you know you have a machine learning problem on your hands? This talk will describe the types of problems ML methods are well suited to solve, with examples from a wide variety of industries. It will also tell you where to get started if you want to try solving one of these problems yourself.

"I'm excited by the prospects of data-driven approaches and passionate about helping customers use machine learning to solve tough problems." Daryl Weir, formerly an academic researcher, now a data scientist at Futurice.
