SXSW PanelPicker Tip #19: AI Everywhere

The Forrest Four-Cast: July 16, 2018

End of day on Friday, July 20 is the deadline for entering a SXSW 2019 speaking proposals via the PanelPicker interface. Between now and Friday’s deadline, this space offers 25 tips on creating an idea that has the most chances for success in this very competitive process.

Today’s reminder is that SXSW audiences are fascinated by all things related to artificial intelligence. Yes, many of these AI-related sessions occur within the “Intelligent Future” track. But, this topic is something that we see throughout the SXSW Conference schedule, mainly because AI is impacting society on so many levels. So if you are searching for a speaking topic that is virtually guaranteed to resonate with the audience that gathers in Austin each March, put together something that addresses the coming age of artificial intelligence as related to any of the 25 different tracks that will make up the 2019 event.

If you want to map out your AI-related speaking proposal before you enter it online, then download the PanelPicker application here.

Finally remember that the registration process for SXSW 2019 opens on Wednesday, August 1. Buy your badge early to ensure the lowest rates and to have the most options on convenient downtown lodging.
