Wait, didn’t this used to be IoT World Conference & Expo / The AI Summit?

Yes! Applied Intelligence Live! Austin is the coming together of IoT World Conference & Expo, The AI Summit, and the Quantum Computing Summit.

With a combined 15-year history, the coming together of these events provides an invaluable opportunity for you to create connections with meetups, hosted events, and numerous opportunities to meet your fellow tech experts.

But we did need a new name to bring these three together so now we're Applied Intelligence Live!

The ‘applied intelligence’ concept brings together four key disciplines and technologies: data science, artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML), quantum computing, and the Internet of Things (IoT).
