PAPIs is the premier forum for the presentation of new machine learning APIs, techniques, architectures and tools to build intelligent applications. It also hosts the world’s 1st startup competition where the jury is an AI.

After first editions in Barcelona and Sydney, PAPIs is making its US debut and the conference’s 3rd edition will take place this Fall at the Microsoft NERD Center in Boston. It’s your chance to meet leaders in applied ML and AI from around the world, who’ll discuss new developments, opportunities and challenges in building real-world predictive applications and APIs.


Invited speakers include:

PAPIs features business & technical presentations for all levels of experience, with cutting-edge and unique talks contributed by UberSalesforceNervana/IntelDataikuOpen Data GroupDatacraticMetisDataRobotBigML, and many others! Topics include Deep Learning, Machine Learning as a Service, AutoML, Spark, Healthcare, IoT, Predictive Maintenance, Marketing and… Elections, with a talk on emotion analysis that allowed Heartbeat AI to predict this year’s Australian elections with unprecedented accuracy — we’ll see how that can translate to the US elections.

The AI Startup Battle is a unique experience where:

  • You’ll discover disruptive innovation from the best startups in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence
  • For the first time in history, the winner will be chosen by an impartial AI that questions startups on stage LIVE and evaluates their chances of success in real-time!

Pre-conference Training

Get up to speed with some of the main topics of the conference with one of our 2 training programs on October 10. Our experienced instructors will be teaching in classrooms of up to 20 persons:

  1. 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.
  2. Predictive analytics at scale — hands-on with Apache Spark: Learn the basics of Spark, including its core API, DataFrames, data processing and cluster deployment.


  • Experience with the command line and in Python programming (Scala a plus for training program #2)
  • 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
