The Autonomous Corporation presented by BootstrapLabs

Thank you to the Autonomous Corporation attendees!

 

We hope that you found the conference informative and enjoyed the networking during the event.

Seeing all of you hanging out until the end of the event made our team proud of their work and strongly encouraged us to keep working hard evangelizing AI around the world.

 

At BootstrapLabs, we believe that innovation and progress will happen at an accelerated pace in all corners of the globe, and that bringing people together around their shared passion for AI will drive positive impact in our world!

 

As many of you have been asking, we would like to officially announce that we have started working on next year’s Applied AI Conference 2017 (Check out the Applied AI Conference 2016 here) and will soon share more information about date, location and speakers line-up.

 

Below you can find some social media posts about the Autonomous Corporation event:

Announcing The Autonomous Corporation

The Autonomous Corporation

We stand in front of the 4th and largest wave of the industrial revolution, powered by AI and Data. This is the biggest opportunity so far for innovation and entrepreneurship, and every single industry will be disrupted and redefined by companies that are not yet even born.

With the AI market projected to grow over 20 fold in the next 10 years to $3Tn annually, we believe Applied Artificial Intelligence represents one of the major wealth creation opportunities of this century.

Any system that is not learning will soon die, and applying AI to new or existing systems will extend and accelerate societal improvement.

AI-driven systems will soon be able to build better, more efficient products that scale and solve problems in ways that have not been possible before. While everyone is talking about Autonomous Vehicles, we want to talk to you about the Autonomous Corporation, where most actions will be automated, decisions autonomously taken and where outcome will be learned from to continuously improve results. We are moving away from the world of Automated Systems and stepping into a world of Autonomous Systems.

 

The power of AI is about leveraging technology and big data, automating repetitive mechanical tasks, capturing more data from the real world, and ultimately empowering humans with actionable intelligence, rather than replacing them, and finally changing our world for the better!

Join us @ BootstrapLabs HQ for an exciting evening with the leaders of the Autonomous Revolution!

Space is very limited and we expect to reach full capacity quickly.
