SwissCognitiveApplied Machine Learning Days (AMLD) is one of the largest Machine Learning & AI events in Europe, and the largest & best-known in Switzerland, focused specifically on the applications of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, making it particularly interesting to industry, academia and public goods organizations. 

Some of the speakers:
Garry Kasparov (Chess Grandmaster) 
Zeynep Tufekci (New York Times writer on AI topics and social impacts of technology, and Prof at Harvard)
Jeff Dean (Head of AI Google, the lead of Google AI, co-inventor of MapReduce, TensorFlow and word2vec)
Katja Hofmann (Microsoft Research, Project Malmo Research Lead) 
Antoine Bordes (Director Facebook AI Research Paris) 
Alex “Sandy” Pentland (Serial entrepreneur, Co-Founder of the MIT Media Lab and among most cited authors in computer science)
Yuan (Alan) Qi (Vice President & AI Chief Scientist, Ant Financial)
Yuanchun Shi (Professor, Tsinghua University) 
Christopher Bishop (Laboratory Director, Microsoft Research Cambridge) 

The event will take place from January 26th to 29th, 2019, at the Swiss Tech Convention Center on EPFL campus, Lausanne, Switzerland, and expecting to have around 2000 visitors.

26+27 January: Saturday and Sunday will be ‘hands-on’ with more than 25 workshops, tutorials, training, coding classes and hackathons.

28+29 January: The main conference will take place on Monday and Tuesday, with a program featuring more than 230 amazing speakers, 16 domain-specific tracks (parallel session), poster sessions, a job fair and a special night with Garry Kasparov, who is recognised by many as the greatest chess player of all time. His legendary matches against the supercomputer Deep Blue made him a central figure in artificial intelligence and the evolution of the human-machine relationship.
