Amazon AI Conclave

Amazon AI Conclave is a free event for business leaders, data scientists, engineers and developers to learn about Amazon's machine learning services, and real-world use cases developed by our customers. This program helps you understand how to build smart, customer-centric, scalable solutions in the cloud and on the edge using Amazon AI, AWS IoT, Machine Learning and AWS Deep Learning.

At Amazon, we have been investing deeply in artificial intelligence for over 20 years.  It's also core to the capabilities our customers experience – from the path optimization in our fulfillment centers, and’s recommendations engine, to Echo powered by Alexa, our drone initiative Prime Air, and our new retail experience Amazon Go. We have thousands of engineers at Amazon committed to machine learning and deep learning, and it is a big part of our heritage.
