OpenTalks.AI /
6-7 March 2023
Yerevan, Armenia

Almost 5 years OpenTalks.AI - leading independent Open conference on Artificial intelligence in Russia. But everything changes and now is time to move on!))

In 2022 many AI specialists left Russia for different countries: Armenia, Georgia, Kazahstan, Uzbekistan, Turkey, UAE, Israel, UK, USA… Most of them are disconnected from usual community, from colleagues and friends.

For this reason, we set a new mission of OpenTalks.AI conference - to become a point of reunion of Russian speaking AI community.

Now it will be not only the conference you love - with it's top level speakers and talks, precise moderation, live networking and musical party. But also a great opportunity to see your colleagues and talk on professional topics, and, in the evening, to talk heart to heart to your friends…

That's why we decided to move conference to a new comfortable place. And this is Yerevan, Armenia!

Once again leading ML/DL professionals from companies and universities will gather in one place. Two days and three tracks: business, R&D and deeptech. But this time some new sessions will appear!

As usual, we will have big blocks on CV, NLP, RL, AGI. Each block will have main stage overview of main results of the year and several separate sessions.

As conference will be on March 6-7, this is great occasion to go to Yerevan with your spouse to spent several nice days in the beautiful city! And we will try to organise parallel schedule for them)

See you in Yerevan!

Conference hall AUA Armenia, Yerevan, 40 Marshal Baghramyan Ave.
