If you’re like most folks in IT, you probably hear a lot about machine learning and AI. You know they’ll eventually have a huge impact on your company, your job, heck, even your personal life, but you’re sure exactly what all the buzz is about.

You’d like to better understand this stuff, and you know deep down having a solid grasp of it would be good for your career, but who has time for online classes, reviewing college calculus and linear algebra, and coding up algorithms? After all, you want to drive the car, not build it.

That’s where the AI Executive Summit comes in. Think of it as a two-day Technical MBA in ML & AI, presented by Sam Charrington, host of the popular This Week in Machine Learning and AI podcast.

View the schedule for Day 1.
