This year's #AIShowBiz Summit 3.0 has 3 simultaeous stages going on throughout the event and I'll be sharing what is happening with you as we move into the final month's countdown before the event! None of this would be possible without our extraoridnary #AIShowBiz team and a special thank you to my remarkable biz partner Lori Lochtefeld!

The two-day long summit will be held on May 2, 3 in Redwood City, CA at the iconic Fox Theatre and will feature trailblazer talks, an entrepreneurial pitch fest, demos of innovative technologies and robots, a “May the Force be with YOU” reception and screening of Chris Paine’s “Do you Trust this Computer?” Film!

The Fox theatre lobby is being transformed into an innovative lounge and rejuvenation center featuring from Lenovo:

The Fun Starts here, join Michael Gates and Mike Leach and dive into A Day in the Life of a Data Scientist sharing how GPU accelerates AI unleashed in their P920 and P520 Workstations which support the industry’s highest possible CPUs + GPUs configuration; making it perfect for intensive Deep learning workloads!

The Fox Theatre Lobby is renamed to: Ojai Energetics Lobby Lounge so summit attendees have a place to rejuvenate while they connect and collaborate with an estimated 1,300 trailblazers pioneering the future of artificial intelligence in the entertainment/media/blockchain sectors! Ojai Energetics will be featuring what I believe is the most advanced water soluble CBD on the Planet. Thanks to Craig Goldberg from Holistic Health Science we'll also be featuring “The Sound Lounge" which is a Vibrational Therapy device which basically is upgrading the listening experience from auditory to physical. When on it, you feel the music with every cell in your body. It’s incredibly soothing and therapeutic.
