Welcome to

The 3rd Research & applied ai summit

London, UK - Friday June 30th, 2017

 

AI is transforming our world. Fast.

 

In its third edition, the Research and Applied AI Summit (RAAIS) 2017 explores the frontiers of AI from the research lab and the technology industry.

RAAIS 2017 brings together applied academic researchers, students, technology entrepreneurs, engineers and product developers, as well as corporate leadership.

This community-focused showcase exists to accelerate the future of AI technology. We hope to inspire new generations of AI entrepreneurs and researchers to solve the world's most important problems.
