Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence are unlocking unprecedented business advantage and delivering exciting, rewarding careers. Despite the vast opportunities that lie in our data, there are also explicit challenges to harnessing them effectively.

To address these challenges and to foster the growth of ML/AI in Toronto we have gathered the top insights, expertise and do's-and-don'ts from our community of over 6,000 local members to create 2 parallel tracks over 2 days: one for Business Leaders, and one for Practitioners.

Business Leaders, including C-level executives and non-tech leaders, will explore immediate opportunities, and define clear next steps for building their business advantage around their data. 

Practitioners will dissect technical approaches, case studies, tools, and techniques to explore Natural Language Processing, Neural Nets, Reinforcement Learning, Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs), Evolution Strategies, AutoML and more. 

The content will be practical, non-sponsored, and tailored to our local eco-system. TMLS is not a sales pitch - It's a connection to a deep community that is committed to advancing ML/AI to deliver value and exciting careers for Canadian Businesses and Individuals
