PAPIs Connect, Europe’s first artificial intelligence event for decision makers is coming to Valencia, Spain, on March 14-15, 2016.
PAPIs (the International Conference on Predictive APIs and Apps) started in November 2014. It also organizes PAPIs Connect event series that focuses on how Data, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence are used by companies to create predictive apps that solve real problems in business and everyday life.
For the first time in history, this edition of PAPIs Connect will perform a startup battle in which the selection of contestants and winners will be chosen completely without human intervention thanks to our special and unique jury — an algorithm! This competition will be powered by the new technology Telefonica Open Future and BigML are developing together in order to rapidly discover the best startups actively working on state-of-the-art predictive apps. The aim is to use a multitude of signals to pinpoint and support these innovators at a very early stage given a high confidence in their likelihood of success.
In addition to the startup battle decision makers, CEO’s, CTO’s, developers, data scientists and technology leaders from around the world will come to Valencia to discuss real life cases, where they have used Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to create value from data. Furthermore, the timing of the event gives participants more inspiration for creativity since it conveniently coincides with the world-famous Valencian Fallas!
As we are wrapping up 2015, now is the time to Call for Proposals. PAPIs Connect is looking for creative speakers like you! Please submit your proposal before January 8, 2016, 11:59pm CET. Here are some topics we would love to hear about next March in Valencia:

Do you think you might be a good candidate? Then, this is your opportunity to join in the proceedings as it is a great chance to share your story with an audience of likeminded innovators and strategic management practitioners in turn receiving support and valuable community feedback.
The PAPIs conference series has started in November 2014 in Barcelona, continued in Paris last May 2015, and Sydney in August 2015. So far more than 500 attendees from 25+ different countries have enjoyed discussions and presentations about predictive apps and their impact in business and real life. In 2016 PAPIs will take place in Boston, US, the dates and location of which will be announced shortly. Stay tuned to book your flight to Boston!
