Save the Date: PyImageConf 2018
PyImageConf is a practical, hands-on conference featuring computer vision, deep learning, and OpenCV experts.
If you want to rub elbows, make connections, and learn from the leading computer vision and deep learning experts (and hang out with us in San Francisco for a few days)…you’ll want to get on the wait list now.
Who is speaking/presenting?
PyImageConf has put together the biggest names in computer vision, deep learning, and OpenCV education to give you the best possible live, hands-on training and talks.
Each speaker is respectively known for their writing, teaching, online courses, and contributions to open source projects.
Right now there are eight confirmed speakers/workshop hosts with more to be added later:
- François Chollet: AI researcher at Google. Author of Keras deep learning library. Works published in CVPR, NIPS, ICLR, and others.
- Katherine Scott: Image analytics team lead for Planet Labs. Former co-founder of Tempo Automation and Sight Machine. Co-author of SimpleCV.
- Davis King: Author of dlib library. Machine learning, computer vision, NLP. Open source developer and practitioner building industry CV systems for over a decade.
- Satya Mallick: Author and creator of LearnOpenCV. Co-founder of TAAZ Inc. Entrepreneur working in CV and ML.
- Joseph Howse: Author of six computer vision/OpenCV books at Packt Publishing. Computer vision and consulting through his company, Nummist Media.
- Adam Geitgey: Author of Machine Learning is Fun! blog series, LinkedIn Learning, and Lynda.com. Loves building products with machine learning and computer vision.
- Jeff Bass: Raspberry Pi hacker, computer vision practitioner, econometrics wizard, 35 years experience in statistics, economics, and biotech.
- Adrian Rosebrock: Author and creator of PyImageSearch.com, Practical Python and OpenCV, PyImageSearch Gurus, and Deep Learning for Computer Vision with Python.
If you’re looking for a computer vision/deep learning conference with the foremost educators and speakers, this is it.
PyImageConf will take place on August 26-28th 2018.
Tickets will go on sale in January 2018.
If you want a ticket make sure you claim your spot in line!
The conference will be hosted in the newly remodeled San Francisco Regency Hyatt, right on the beautiful San Francisco Bay waterline.
Talks will take place in their exquisite state-of-the-art ballroom and workshops/breakout sessions will utilize the hotel’s dedicated workspaces.
Take a look at the photos below to get a feel for the space — I’m sure you’ll agree that this will be the computer vision and deep learning event of the year:
I’m currently finalizing ticket prices with my conference coordinator now but expect the prices to be in the $700-$900 range.
This may seem like a lot, but keep in mind this includes two full days of talks, workshops, and training — most conferences would charge well over $1,500-$2,500 for this type of event.
If you’re a PyImageSearch Gurus member you will enjoy first dibs on the tickets (and a discount).
Take the time now to check with your stakeholders (spouse, kids, etc.) and earmark funds to grab a ticket.
How many tickets will there be?
The conference will be small and intimate, capped at 200 attendees.
I’m purposely keeping the conference small to enable you to:
- Learn from the speakers and presenters
- Have 1-on-1 time with experts in computer vision and deep learning
- Better network with your peers and colleagues
Once the 200 tickets sell out, they’re all gone and I will not be adding more.
Tickets will sell out…so get on the early bird list!
If you’re a longtime PyImageSearch reader I don’t need to tell you how fast these types of sales sell out.
A few years ago when I ran a Kickstarter campaign for the PyImageSearch Gurus course all early bird specials sold out within 30 minutes.
In January of this year I launched the Deep Learning for Computer Vision with Python Kickstarter — all early bird specials were claimed in under 15 minutes.
Given that there will only be 200 tickets available, I expect all tickets to sell out within 10 minutes of the tickets going live.
So, if you want a ticket to PyImageConf…
Here’s the TL;DR;
- PyImageConf will take place on August 26-28th 2018 at the San Francisco Hyatt Regency.
- I’m capping the conference at 200 attendees to keep the event small, intimate, and hands-on.
- Confirmed speakers include François Chollet (Keras), Davis King (dlib) Katherine Scott (SimpleCV/Planet Labs), Satya Mallick (LearnOpenCV), Adrian Rosebrock (that’s me!) and others.
- Tickets will go on sale in January 2018.
- If you want a ticket, you’ll need to claim your spot in line (tickets will sell out FAST).
