Event description


Real-world Machine Learning stories, applications and techniques

After previous editions on 4 different continents (Barcelona, Paris, Sydney, Valencia, Boston, São Paulo) gathering 1000+ attendees from 30+ countries, PAPIs is returning to Boston with the 4th International Conference on Predictive Applications and APIs, taking place on October 24-25, 2017 at Microsoft NERD.

What's at PAPIs '17?

Talks & networking

PAPIs is your chance to meet the movers and shakers in real-world ML who'll discuss new developments, opportunities and challenges in building intelligent applications. It features business & technical talks for all levels of experience (see highlights & JMLR proceedings).

AI Startup Battle

The conference also hosts the world's 1st startup competition where the jury is an AI (powered by Telefonica Open Future). Find out which are the most promising startups in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, or apply to pitch your own startup and be part of this unique event!

Pre-conference Training Workshops

Are you new to Machine Learning and looking to make the most of it? Learn first-hand what predictive technology can do, how to use modern tools and APIs to solve real-world problems, and how to create tomorrow's intelligent applications.

Get up to speed with some of the main topics of the conference with one of our training workshops on October 23 (separate venue, TBC soon). Our experienced instructors will be teaching in classrooms of up to 20 persons:

  • Operational Machine Learning with Open Source & Cloud Platforms. Learn about the possibilities of ML, how to create predictive models from data, operationalize and evaluate them.
  • Introduction to Deep Learning with Keras & TensorFlow. Learn the basics of DL, how to experiment and deploy solutions, and the most useful tools in the TensorFlow ecosystem.


  • Experience with the command line and in Python programming
  • Attendees are expected to bring their own laptops for the hands-on practical work, which makes up most of the program
  • Basic knowledge of calculus, linear algebra, and probability theory can be helpful for some of the theoretical modules
