Ignite Talks

What's an Ignite talk? Four minutes on stage to talk about an idea, an interest or a passion. Our version is 15 slides that rotate automatically after 15 seconds. It's fun, it's fast, and the format forces you to really think about what you want to say.

Game? Let us know asap. This event fills up every year, so the only way to confirm a slot is to post your idea title and brief summary below.

To do a great Ignite talk, tell us about something you're passionate about, something that others should know, or some unique bit of knowledge or insight that you can impart. (And please don't do a pitch or your company creds)

Why Machine Learning works as well as it does.

It's basically physics. It can be mathematically proven that the reason all our ML and AI works as well as it does comes down to a neat feature of the real world. Don't worry, I won't drag you through a mathematical proof, but I'll talk you through the cool principle behind it and I hope that after 4 minutes, you'll agree that the universe is even more awesome than we'd imagined.
