The inaugural AICON will take place on Thursday 28th November in The Europa Hotel, Belfast. This event will bring together world-leading technology professionals and business leaders to examine how AI is changing our world.

Matrix will be there to launch our new report, Artificial Intelligence Research in Northern Ireland, which we recently published. We will also be participating in panel discussions and running a workshop on the potential applications of AI in the agri sector.

AI is one of the most important technological developments of the modern era.  The ‘age of implementation’ is now upon us and this gathering of AI trailblazers will provide a unique opportunity to have a high energy, world-class conference.

The conference will offer a unique opportunity to engage with those professionals and developers, creatives, entrepreneurs and business leaders, who have led on adopting AI as a tool to build better services, products and businesses.

The programme has been curated by a group of experienced technology practitioners who will bring their extensive knowledge of AI and their incomparable network of contacts together in assembling world-class sessions featuring the best of local and international talent.

With two tracks running simultaneously, this event will allow senior business leaders to explore the potential of AI for their business or sector and offer technical and engineering audience a better understanding of how to get started in delivering AI solutions and what the most useful tools, techniques, platforms and practical lessons are.
