This year has delivered a completely different AI conference experience as they have moved virtually due to the pandemic. Many machine learning conferences were rescheduled to the end of the year in order to still host physical events. Unfortunately, things are not under control yet, resulting in the adoption of virtual conferences. Although networking in remote AI conferences is strenuous, it eliminates the geographic barrier of physical events. One can gain interesting insights from top researchers while being at home in 2020.
Here are the top 4 AI conferences that will be organized before the year ends.
RAISE (Responsible AI For Social Empowerment)
Organized by the Government of India, RAISE is a global five-day artificial intelligence summit. Many tech leaders like Arvind Krishna, CEO of IBM, Mukesh Ambani, chairman, MD of Reliance Industries Ltd, N Chandrasekaran, chairman of Tata Sons, and more, will be speaking at the event. Researchers and developers from across the world will join RAISE and talk about a wide range of topics related to artificial intelligence.
Yann LeCun, Chief of AI, Facebook, Dr Milind Tambe, Director “AI for Social Good” at Google Research India, Ms Nivruti Rai, Country Head of Intel, among others, will share their views on topics such as Explainable AI, Responsible AI, NLP, and more.
Starting on October 5, 2020, RAISE is a free AI conference that everyone should sign up for.
NeurIPS (Neural Information Processing Systems)
NeurIPS is one of the oldest machine learning conferences catering to ML enthusiasts’ needs since 1987. Due to COVID-19, NeurIPS 2020 will be a virtual event, which will be held from December 6, 2020, to December 12, 2020. After ‘industry expo’ on the opening day, the rest of the days will be filled with tutorials, talks, and workshops. You can register for the summit here, which has varying prices for regular attendees and students.

GTC (GPU Technology Conference)
GTC is organized by NVIDIA, which will start on October 5, 2020, and end on October 9, 2020. With over 600+ live and on-demand sessions, you will have an opportunity to learn from some of the best minds in the industry. Although the name gives a sense of a hardware event, it is a deep learning conference, covering topics like autonomous machines, conversational AI, AR/VR, and computing.
GTC also includes a full-day workshop from Deep Learning Institute (DLI) to teach learners working with neural networks, deep learning tools, frameworks, and SDKs. However, you will have to pay an additional $99 for attending this remote workshop.

EmTech (MIT Technology Review)
EmTech will be held virtually from October 20, 2020, to October 22 by MIT Technology Review. The AI conference will feature Geoffrey Hinton, Professor Emeritus, University of Toronto, VP and Engineering Fellow, Google, Marc Benioff, Chair, CEO, and Cofounder of Salesforce, Parag Agrawal, CTO of Twitter, and more. The three-day event has been segmented into ‘leading with innovation,’ ‘forces of change,’ and ‘the path forward,’ where researchers and tech leaders will shed light on the possible direction for embracing AI.
