Hear from AI Leaders at the 2023 IA Summit

Intelligent and generative applications are defining the next generation of innovation. A new GenAI stack is emerging. At the 2023 IA Summit we heard from founders at the cutting edge and established companies building for the future.

Foundation models and GenAI are taking the world by storm. As these technologies mature, the potential they have when deployed in business applications becomes more apparent by the day. It is these applications that will  define the future of software and the next generation of computing.

2024 Summit Agenda

We are working on it. See the 2023 Agenda here.
If we go look to the future ... there's going to be a few big foundational models and then just tweaks, tweaks, tweaks, tweaks on top of it.

Charles Lamanna - Corp VP Business Apps and Platform - Microsoft

I think that the emergence of some of these foundational models is opening up what is possible.

Matt Garman - SVP
AWS Sales and Marketing – Amazon

Matt Garmen
Three years from now, [foundation models] will be easily an order of magnitude cheaper. To me, the harder problem is — how do we use these in a way to maximize the value.
