9 Tracks of Content

Our content tracks span they keynote stage, breakout stages, small group discussion sessions, expo sponsor presentations, and in-depth workshops. With so many tracks to choose from, you can design the perfect curriculum for yourself and your engineers.

New Our full talk schedule is now published here.

June 27: At last year's Summit, Logan Kilpatrick declared this the “Year of Multimodal AI”. Every frontier model now can consume and generate images, audio, video, code, and all other modalities in between. This opens up a brave new world of possibilities for putting even more general intelligence to work - we'll gather the best of 2024 to show off these capabilities!

June 27: 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 Groq, Gradient.ai, PredictionGuard and more.

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"!

Pre-party, Hackathon and Other SF AI Events

Come for the World's Fair, stay for the SF AI scene!

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 24-28, 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.
