My Recommended Machine Learning Conferences 2020 – 2021

ML Conference Singapore 2020

2020 Conference Date

September 8th, 2020
This Event is Now Over
Singapore
More Info & Event Link

Conference Summary

Singapore hosts a ton of Cybersecurity Conferences every year, indeed in all of APAC, Singapore certainly leads the way in many aspects of InfoSec. Hong Kong I’d say is second in terms of Cyber companyincorporations and events.

This Singaporean event is part of a series managed by ML Conferences. If Machine-Learning is your thing and you’re a professional in the APAC region then this is for you. Hear from seasoned professionals regarding important cutting-news on for example which libraries, models, methods, services, and algorithms to use.

The speakers will also, according to the organizers of this ML Conference, share the “best war stories of training cutting edge machine learning algorithms”. So, again, if ML is your thing then clearly this is an event for you.


Applied Machine Learning & AI (ML & AI)

2020 Conference Date

September 23rd, 2020
This Event is Now Over
United Kingdom
More Info & Event Link

Conference Summary

Whitehall organizes a bunch of IT security events every year, and this one is specifically designed for participants to have a better understanding of how to plan for AI. Attending this London, UK event, will certainly help you to identify which business elements require adoption, and how to adapt related technologies to AI capabilities.

Whitehall are a reputable conference organizer and I’d strongly suggest that you go check out their events for 2020 and next year.


Codemotion Rome

2020 Conference Date

November 27th, 2020
3 Days Until The Event
Italy
More Info & Event Link

Conference Summary

I try and mix the geographical locations for all our “Best Of” series and this one in Rome has some pertinent info relating to all industries within Cybersecurity.

Important to this particular ML Conferences resource, I’d hang my hat on saying that this event will cover ML content and if you work in the ML/AI space then go check out the event.

Codemotion Rome is an event attended mostly by developers (DevOps and SecOps) who want to develop or learn new skills.

As one of the largest tech conferences in Europe, I’ve highlighted this event as having a strong likelihood of having Machine Learning content. Programming ML is of course part of the subject-matter so it’s likely again that ML as well as AI will be a prominent feature of the talks this year and next.


Cyber Security Africa Summit

2020 Conference Date

November 26th, 2020
2 Days Until The Event
Zimbabwe
More Info & Event Link

Conference Summary

In the spirit of trying to cover every geographical region of our planet, I’ve also included InfoSec Africa Planet.

The organizers have advertised the fact that their event has over 50 sessions that include topics relating to IoT, AI, Blockchain, Cybersecurity and of interest to us: Machine Learning!

Consider this conference as a “must-attend event” for those working in Africa and related to any of the above subject-matters. This conference attracts top tech security leaders, entrepreneurs, and IT innovators who will be present to network and help share up the future in Africa.


Black Hat Europe 2020

2020 Conference Date

November 9th, 2020
This Event is Now Over
United Kingdom
More Info & Event Link

Conference Summary

Black Hat Europe (as well as Asia and the US) is attended by thousands of InfoSec professionals from all around the world. I’ve added this event because it is highly likely that it will cover a bunch of ML content.


AWS Re:Invent 2020

2020 Conference Date

November 30th, 2020
6 Days Until The Event
United States
More Info & Event Link

Conference Summary

Hosted by one of the largest companies around the world, this Amazon event is a platform where the cloud computing community as well as other ML technology will be gathered.

This conference will feature keynote presentations, training, certification, and access to over 2,000 sessions – so yes surely there will be some ML content and subject matter embedded in there!

A lot of pioneering ML tech and programs will run on AWS hence why I’d reconned and encourage you to learn more about this annual event that is aimed at developers and engineers so if you’re working in that field, this will be an awesome event.


Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (PHLAI)

2020 Conference Date

October 28th, 2020
This Event is Now Over
United States
More Info & Event Link

Conference Summary

Organized by Comcast Labs, this year’s PHLAI event is themed “Protect with Zero Trust”.

This conference, which I suspect was virtual in 2020, was designed to help attendees gain the most recent “insights on techniques, controls, and emerging solutions in a friendly environment”, all within an ML perspective. This US event is certainly worth consideration.


Autonomous Mobile Machines Conference

2020 Conference Date

June 29th, 2020
This Event is Now Over
Germany
More Info & Event Link

Conference Summary

The title of this German-based conference sums up perfectly what it is all about.

If you have association within the industry and work in DACH then clearly this event would be of interest.

In 2020, the conference had over 100 attendees and 30 speakers that all gathered in one place to discuss the new technical innovations and challenges regarding Machine Learning. If you have any role with regards to sensor fusion, computer vision, deep learning, and perception technologies, then this event would be particularly useful to attend!


International Conference on Emerging Networks Technologies (ICENT)

2020 Conference Date

September 22nd, 2020
This Event is Now Over
Japan
More Info & Event Link

Conference Summary

This Japanese event is (by my estimations) aimed at researchers, practitioners, and professionals from the government and academia.

The event in 2020 contained a bunch of Machine Learning content so it’s likely that that will be repeated every year.


AI&ML for the Smart Grid

2020 Conference Date

September 8th, 2020
This Event is Now Over
United Kingdom
More Info & Event Link

Conference Summary

We also cover this event in our “Best AI Conferences” round up here.

As stated on the other listing, we’re big fans of SmartGrid and can vouch for the depth and quality of their talks and speakers and this one has a clear focus on Machine Learning.

If you’re located in London, UK, and work within the Machine Learning space then there would be no excuse not to attend!
