Meet international AI leaders next March in Valencia

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. The conference also hosts the world's first AI Startup Battle where selection is made by an AI — powered by Telefonica Open Future.

Open sourcing a predictive API

Seldon is a company that has been operating a "black box" predictive API for three years and that recently open sourced its entire predictive stack. Alex Housley, Seldon's CEO, is one of the speakers at PAPIs '15 where he'll talk about the journey from closed to open: the challenges and pitfalls, architectural considerations, case studies, changes to business models, and new opportunities for partnership across the full stack — between both open and closed technology providers. In this post, Alex gives us a preview of his talk and a first look at the reasons behind this important change...

2nd International Conference on Predictive APIs and Apps

Big Data can only deliver an impact when associated with intelligence that extracts knowledge from it. This is what Machine Learning does by automatically finding patterns in data and using them to make predictions. These predictions can then be integrated in real-world applications and at large scale thanks to predictive APIs (Application Programming Interfaces). PAPIs '15 brings together experts from all over the world who are defining the future of predictive technology and who are exploiting its opportunities in various domains.

Mark the date - 2nd International Conference on Predictive APIs and Apps!

As you may already know, PAPIs will be coming to Sydney this year (and to other places as well, but more on that later). We’ll be collocated with KDD, the ACM conference on knowledge discovery and data mining which attracts 2000+ big data practitioners and researchers. While we haven’t confirmed the Sydney venue yet, we’ve decided on a date which we’re announcing today — so you can already put it in your calendar and start making plans...

PAPIs.io '14 attendees in numbers, charts and pictures!

As we're preparing for PAPIs.io '15, it's interesting to have a look at who came to the previous edition a few months ago in Barcelona. For this, we have two main sources of data: the registration data provided by Eventbrite and the responses to our post-conference survey. With it we were able to learn about the "profiles" of attendees, which we classified into 4 types...
