From smartphones' predictive apps to driverless cars, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is everywhere. It is also used by organizations to make sense of their data (big and small). For that, they apply Machine Learning techniques that find patterns in data, use them to make predictions, prescribe actions, and ultimately to automate decisions. PAPIs Connect is Europe's 1st AI conference for business and IT decision makers, managers and app developers. It brings together international experts who are exploiting AI’s opportunities in various domains and industries — even traditional ones. The conference also hosts the world's first AI Startup Battle where selection is made by an AI (powered by Telefonica Open Future).

 
 

PAPIs Connect aims at demystifying AI by featuring concrete use cases that show how it creates value, and how it can be implemented. It is the sister event to PAPIs, the International Conference on Predictive APIs and Apps taking place annually, with previous editions in Barcelona and Sydney that gathered attendees from 25 different countries. PAPIs Connect focuses on how machine learning and artificial intelligence are used by all types of organizations —from startups to large corporations— to create predictive apps and autonomous systems that solve real problems in business and everyday life. Typical examples are: predictive maintenance, demand prediction for replenishment, priority detection, pricing optimisation, churn detection, task automation, etc.

The next edition of the conference will bring leading speakers in this space (coming from the US, UK, Netherlands, Germany, France, Portugal and Spain) to Universitat Politècnica de València on 14-15 March 2016 (right before the famous Fallas). The most promising AI startups will be invited to pitch on stage in a never-seen-before Startup Battle, and the winner will be selected by an impartial algorithm that predicts startups' chances of success.
