s with most tech conferences these days, and probably the years to come for the matter, the buzz is all about artificial intelligence. Maybe it’s because of the level of the attendee’s but I found that it’s quite difficult to have a meaningful discussion on the topic. There are many debates going on, people don’t speak the same language, and have a different meaning for the same terminology. On the positive, there is a lot of progress on the subject, on all axis. I like to process my thoughts by writing a couple of articles from the notes I made during the conference.
