Data + AI Summit, the global event for the data community, returns May 24-28. We are thrilled to announce that registration for this free virtual event is now open!

The future is open

Data and AI are rapidly opening up new possibilities and solving stubborn problems. Unifying data opens up collaboration and solutions that were once unthinkable. Pushing the limits of AI and ML have opened doors to innovation that were, even just recently, deemed impossible.

That’s why we’re celebrating this spirit of openness — open source, open standards, open minded — at this year’s summit.

For many of us, open takes on an even greater meaning: after more than a year of COVID shutdowns, the world is starting to reopen. That’s why one of our goals for Data + AI Summit is to virtually bring together top data professionals from every corner of the globe to explore new ideas and technologies.

What will you experience?

With more than 100,000 data and AI experts, leaders and visionaries expected at Data + AI Summit, our team is hard at work putting together five days of sessions, keynotes, training and demos.

We’ve curated a broad range of speakers – within tech and beyond – to share their stories and insights alongside industry leaders. Expect to hear from change-makers like:

  • Malala Yousafzai, Nobel Peace Prize winner and education advocate
  • DJ Patil, Former Chief Data Scientist of the US Office of Science and Technology Policy
  • Matei Zaharia, Databricks Co-founder & Chief Technologist, and original creator of Apache Spark™ and MLflow

You’ll also hear from data leaders at companies like H&M, Apple, Northwestern Mutual and Nielsen who will share their stories about unifying data and AI to power their data teams and solve business challenges.

You can choose from over 200 sessions presented by leading experts in industry, research and academia. These highly-technical sessions will keep you up-to-date with the latest advances in open-source technologies like Apache Spark™, Delta Lake, MLflow and Koalas. Plus, you will walk away from Summit understanding how your organization will benefit from uniting data and AI on a common platform with Databricks Lakehouse.

And don’t forget the free and paid hands-on training for your entire data team; last year, these sessions filled up quickly. From data engineers to data scientists to business leaders, everyone will benefit from these deep-dive, specialized workshops.
