Commerce: How AI is transforming the explosive mobile commerce industry.


Social: Your social strategy needs to adapt, because Facebook, Twitter and others are implementing AI that recognizes images, videos, voice, and other content to surface material in different ways to your users.


Marketing: The key AI trends and technologies brands will want to stay abreast of to maintain digital marketing leadership.


The new leaders: AI has spawned exciting large platforms like Facebook's Bots for Messenger, and voice recognition offerings like Amazon’s Alexa/Echo, Apple’s Siri, Google Assistant, and Microsoft’s Cortana. Which of them are leaders to bet on? 


Customer service: AI lets companies recognize customer problems and identify patterns by analyzing data much more quickly. How much opportunity and success can come from exploring new, engaging platforms like bots?


A deeper look at massive areas of AI being disrupted: Photo and video filtering (Facebook, Prisma), healthcare (Deep Genomics, Grand Rounds), fintech 

 (Quantopian, Neurensic) and security (Feedzai, Sift Science).


App economy: Why is AI transforming the mobile app economy, and how is that economy adapting.


AI & Design: Is AI the future of UX, now that interacting with intelligent software and devices — be it at home, work, in the car, or on the go — becomes more natural, intuitive and intelligent?

This year, VB Summit moves to the Claremont Hotel & Resort in Berkeley, just a 20-minute drive from downtown San Francisco. The Claremont is one of America’s iconic luxury hotels, overlooking San Francisco Bay and offering 22 acres of landscaped gardens and extensive networking areas. Its close proximity to San Francisco offers out-of-town guests excellent access to all the city offers for leisure or business, but is just far enough away from downtown to provide a perfect retreat setting. Check out our special event + hotel package when you register.
