IEEE Infrastructure Conference – Exploring Scale and the Impacts of Artificial Intelligence
Attend the 2nd annual IEEE Infrastructure Conference, 16-17 October 2019 in San Francisco, CA, where this year, we will continue our discussion on scale, focusing on the important role of AI.
Gain insight and inspiration to think, or re-think, your infrastructure in sessions guided by and in discussion with foremost experts across the technology industry.
Join us as we discuss big picture questions to give you overall, forward thinking insight, as well as operational nuts & bolts for maximizing your infrastructure.
General areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning
- AI Accelerators and how they can maintain and support infrastructure
- Current Implementations & Challenges
- Security & Trust
- Scalability & Reliability
- The Future of AI and Infrastructure

About the Event
Why Infrastructure Matters - A Note From the Chair
Infrastructures are the backend, heart and foundations of many products and companies. What I've learned throughout my career is that creativity, innovations, understanding your customers, and researching other technologies are important factors when building and running infrastructure at different scales. The problem sets and challenges could vary based on the business, architecture and the scale of each company, however, the learnings can apply uniformly independent of what industry you are in.
Our goal for this conference is to bring folks that have been or interested to be involved in building and running infrastructure at any scale and create a community that we can all learn from each other. We hope we can share our stories, lessons learned and when it makes sense even start working together on standards. We also plan on having this conference focus on different topics and based on the feedback from the participants we will adjust the frequency, location and sessions.
The 2019 IEEE Infrastructure Conference Committees are comprised of talented individuals across a range of expertise who have voluntarily committed their time to make this event a success.
