New Our full talk schedule is now published here.

Jun 26 - Conference Day 1

Retrieval Augmented Generation has emerged as the core workload of most production LLM applications. The techniques and tools have exploded in the past year - what's actually SOTA and what's just social media hype? Talks from MongoDB, Qdrant + Quotient, Normal Computing, Neo4j, Gather.ai, Datastax, and not to mention keynote features from LangChain and LlamaIndex.

Jun 27 - Conference Day 2

Almost everybody is GPU poor, but you can make a -lot- out of the GPUs you can get. Optimize your inference and training costs and maximize your throughput! Hear from SemiAnalysis (GPU Poor), Groq, Crusoe, Fireworks and more. Bonus talks from Cognition (Devin) and Google (Gemma) here due to travel schedules.

Jun 26-27 - Both Conference Days

An exclusive closed-door track for VPs of AI and other technical/engineering leaders. How do you effectively lead an AI Product or Engineering team in 2024? Defining AI Strategy, technical direction, org design, hiring/growing, and build/buy decisions. Executive briefings and roundtables on AI platform engineering, model building, evals and FMOps, inference optimization, code maintenance and technical debt, AI Engineer hiring, and more, directly from the top CEOs and technical leaders working in this space, from OpenAI, Cohere, NVIDIA, Sourcegraph, Weights & Biases, HumanLoop, Khan Academy, Twilio, Hex, Neo4j, Tola/Microsoft, PredictionGuard, and more.

Sometimes the most useful talks are the small, practical sessions on specific technologies, new concepts, and customer stories. Access to the World's Fair Expo gets you access to dedicated sessions from 30+ speakers, Microsoft, AWS, Google, MongoDB, Neo4j, Perplexity, and more, as well as attendee-led Ignite Talks and the first ever public HF0 Demo Day!

Schedule

There are up to 6 simultaneous things at any one time in this multitrack conference! The first conference day runs the CodeGen, Open Models, RAG, and Fortune 500 tracks concurrently, whereas the second has Multimodality, GPUs, Evals, and Agents tracks.

You can walk the World's Fair Expo (ft. 30+ booths across the AI Engineering landscape) on any of the 3 days, while Keynote, and AI Leadership sessions span the 2 conference days. There are also plenty of breaks for the most important track of all: the "hallway track"!

/ June 22 - 28

Pre-party, Hackathons, Afterparty, and Other SF AI Events

Come for the World's Fair, stay for the SF AI scene!
Events we recommend:

With much of the AI world flying in to SF, there are lots of meetings and side events that will be organized in the surrounding days. We recommend flying in for the whole week from Monday through Friday so as not to miss out.

If you are organizing an event around the week of June 22-28, please get in touch with us to list on our calendar for attendees to find you!

There are roughly two orders of magnitude more software engineers than there are machine learning engineers. By building good tools, we think it is possible for AI Engineers to use machine learning in the same way they can use normal software.
