London, as a financial center and cosmopolitan city, has its historical charm, cultural draw, and technical allure for everyone, whether you are an artist, entrepreneur or high-tech engineer. As such, we are excited to announce that London is our next stop for Spark + AI Summit Europe, from October 2-4th, 2018, so prepare yourself for the largest Spark + AI community gathering in EMEA!

Today, we announced our agenda for Spark + AI Summit Europe, with over 100 sessions across 11 tracks, including AI Use Cases, Deep Learning Techniques, Productionizing Machine Learning, and Apache Spark Streaming. Sign up before July 27th for early registration and save £300.00.

While we will announce all our exceptional keynotes soon, we are delighted to have these notable technical visionaries as part of the keynotes: Databricks CEO and Co-founder Ali Ghodsi; Matei Zaharia, the original creator of Apache Spark and Databricks chief technologist; Reynold Xin, Databricks co-founder and chief architect; and Soumith Chintala, creator of PyTorch and AI researcher at Facebook.

Along with these visionary keynotes, our agenda features a stellar lineup of community talks led by engineers, data scientists, researchers, entrepreneurs, and machine learning experts from Facebook, Microsoft, Uber, CERN, IBM, Intel, Redhat, Pinterest and, of course, Databricks. There is also a full day of hands-on Apache Spark and Deep Learning training, with courses for both beginners and advanced users, on both AWS and Azure clouds.

All of the above keynotes and sessions will reinforce the idea that Data + AI and Unified Analytics are an integral part of accelerating innovation. For example, early this month, we had our first expanded Spark + AI Summit at Moscone Center in San Francisco, where over 4,000 Spark and Machine Learning enthusiasts attended, representing over 40 countries and regions. The overall theme of Data + AI as a unifying and driving force of innovation resonated in many sessions, including notable keynotes, as Apache Spark forays into new frontiers because of its capability to unify new data workloads and capacity to process data at scale.

With four new tracks, over 180 sessions, Apache Spark and Deep Learning training on both AWS and Azure Cloud, and myriad community-related events, the San Francisco summit was a huge success and a new experience for many attendees! One attendee notes:

For a moment I thought I entered a music festival and not #SparkAISummit. The lighting and music was on point.

We want our European attendees to have a similar experience and gain the same knowledge, so make this your moment, keep calm and come to London in October. With an early bird registration, you can save you £300.00.
