The 16th International Learning and Technology Conference

(L&T 2019)

"Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning: Intelligence is Power"

Rescheduled to 3rd-4th March 2019

 26th-27th Jumada II 1440

Effat University, Jeddah, KSA

In recent times, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine learning (ML) have gained prevalence in the world of technology and learning such that they are projected to be the game-changers of the coming decade.   In the wake of the fourth industrial revolution, governments and businesses across the globe are also beginning to realize the seismic shift towards AI and ML.   Leading software companies such as Oracle, Salesforce, and SAP are even embedding machine learning into their apps.   Alongside the dominance of the technology giants Amazon, Google, and Microsoft, are major Asian global forces such as Alibaba and Baidu, and a plethora of AI-related startup companies have ambitions to become the next AI leaders.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Vision 2030 realizes the importance of AI and ML in the future of the nation, and its National Digitization Unit (NDU) is striving towards recognizing the Kingdom as a new tech hub for the modern Arab world.

The 16th International Learning and Technology (L&T 2019) Conference is a unique opportunity for researchers, entrepreneurs, technology developers and policy makers to address current challenges and advances in the field of AI & ML.   Specifically, it will examine the modern practices and potential of AI & ML and the way it affects the digital transformation, innovation, and social, economic and educational developments, both locally and globally.   The conference will feature keynote presentations, thought-provoking paper presentations, workshop sessions and stimulating panel discussions covering the latest developments in the AI & ML ecosystem. 

Join us and explore new collaboration opportunities, cultivate your social and knowledge networks, and compliment your core experience!
