What is A2.AI?

A2.AI is Ann Arbor’s applied artificial intelligence conference. Our mission is to educate professionals on the best AI, ML, and BI tools and strategies available today while providing networking opportunities. 2021 is the third annual event, with a theme of Growth Marketing Intelligence, highlighting GMI tactics that improve customer relationships and grow the bottom line.

Why Participate in A2.AI?

Many businesses have not begun to utilize the power of applied AI, viewing it as something to tackle in the future. Through a series of speaker, panel, and networking sessions, industry leaders will share how applied AI, predictive analytics, and data visualization are changing how they tackle complex business challenges.

Who Will Join?

The conference will host leaders and entrepreneurs from the local and national stage. Attendees will have the opportunity to ignite new conversations in the artificial intelligence space with experienced veterans. Learn through our speaker series, ask questions during our panels, and engage with others during the provided lunch and networking hour.

A2.AI 2021 will be a virtual event.
