7 reasons you should join us for Rise of AI 2017 – Artificial Intelligence conference in Berlin

Rise of AI is one full day to learn about the status of Artificial Intelligence, think about the future and discuss its implication for society. 7 reasons why you should join too.

Europe’s most exciting conference for Artificial Intelligence

We started small. First 20 people at cbase speaking about “Did Singularity already happen?“. Then 100 futurists met at hub:raum and spoke about “Rise of AI – The Singularity might be closer than you think“. Half a year later, 170 forward-thinkers came together at Betahaus for “Rise of AI – Human coexistence with Machines“.

Now we are hosting the third time Rise of AI (www.riseof.ai) for 350 guests. We organize an exciting, intellectual, inspiring and unique event about Artificial Intelligence here at Berlin. We invite the greatest minds to the Deutsches Technikmuseum to discuss, talk, network and understand.

7 reasons why you should come to Rise of AI

#1 Artificial Intelligence is critical

Currently everyone talks about AIs. But what are AIs? Elon Musks warns us, as well as Hawking and Gates. Do you understand what AIs can do today? Have you thought about the progress of AIs the next years? You should. It could be the last invention of human kind.

#2 Superhealth. Superhappiness. Superwealth.

Artificial Intelligence has influence on your health, your wealth, your personal happiness, your free time and your job. Are you only an observer and watch it rolling over? Or do you want to be active and influence the change!

#3 Strong content

We have invited really amazing speakers. Prof. von der Malsburg hat 50 years of AI experiences. William Hertling writes crazy-creative books about AI conquering the world (12 books you should read to prepare for Singularity). Dr. Trent McConaghy combines AI + blockchains and believes machines take over the world. Prof. Danko Nikolic is a brain researcher and does not agree with Trent. Joel will moderate the day. And even some members of the German Bundestag have signed up.

#4 Interactive program

Keynotes can be great, but knowledge goes only one way. Therefore we have organize AI-Topic-Leaders. These are small workshops, where you can discuss more current topics with experts. Accelerated Dynamics will show us some autonomous drones and AI-startups will give us demos of their products.

#5 Meet the speakers and network

I don’t like it, when after a talk the speaker disappears. Therefore our speakers will be at their tables and open for a more personal Q&A sessions. Use this opportunity to meet them.

Additional networking is key for us. There is plenty of time and reason to meet new people, learn, exchange ideas and make contacts.

#6 We have a mission

We (my wife and I) organize Rise of AI, because we have a mission. We want to educate about Artificial Intelligence. We wish, that AIs will help us humans to conquer the galaxy one day. AIs will make our lives better, longer and more convenient. Additional there are challenges and risks (from jobless future to superintelligence). We need to address them before it is too late. Therefore Rise of AI is a platform for interested people to meet, discuss and learn.

#7 Historical location to talk about the future

Where else do you want to talk about the future? The Deutsche Technikmuseum Berlin is a historical location, where the past meets the future. You can see the first computer (Z1 by Zuse) and other great inventions of human kind.
