What to Expect At Data + AI Summit: Open Source, Technical Keynotes and More!

Data + AI Summit, the world’s largest data and AI conference, returns June 27-30 2022, and we’re thrilled to say that this year, you can attend it in person in San Francisco (or online for FREE from anywhere in the world). Registration is now open, and we look forward to welcoming you. We have compiled a list of highlights below to get a sneak peek. Enjoy!

Lakehouse: Foundation of the modern data architecture

We are seeing a new era of data architecture being adopted by data practitioners. It’s multicloud, multi-format, polyglot — not restrictive or siloed…and the foundation is the lakehouse.

Data + AI Summit is where data professionals come together to collaborate and discuss the modern data architecture and trends that addresses all data, analytics, and AI use cases. Through these sessions, we will learn about this new generation of Open Platforms that unifies Data Warehousing, Data Engineering and Artificial Intelligence.  Attendees will include practitioners,  partners and thought leaders from the open-source community, united by a common purpose: to build innovative data systems and solutions capable of solving the toughest data problems. Move your data beyond the complexity and compromise of silos, proprietary formats, vendor lock-in and disconnected data teams.
