Throughout the event we’ll have a wide variety of luminary lunches and trailblazer sessions that will bring to life how AI is moving the needle across industries. You’ll get the chance to find out how AI is transforming music production, learn the role it can play in sports and even discover how it’s unraveling the mysteries of the universe. Then, on Thursday, May 23, we’ll have a special return visitor. Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson joins us once more for a new installment of his popular An Astrophysicist Goes to the Movies speaker series. This time he’ll tackle Observations of AI in Film and Other Musings: where Hollywood has gotten things right, how they’ve gotten it wrong and where things go from here.

Here’s where you can find the full list of our luminary lunches and trailblazer sessions.

Hear Firsthand Stories from AI Leaders and Innovators in the Amphitheater

Our thought leadership sessions at the amphitheater, located in the Village, is a special opportunity to hear directly from innovators across the industry and how they make magic: AI success stories about turning ideas into outcomes that impact human experience, business and the world.

Across Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, we’re bringing together customers, partners from EY and Deloitte and Dell’s own thought leaders to share how they’re leveraging generative AI, the innovation accelerator of the decade, and across topics like solving the data dilemma in the age of AI, embracing a people-first approach and future-proofing business with sustainable IT.

You also won’t want to miss Tuesday’s 3 PM PT session The Hacker vs. the Security Expert, a dynamic exchange between a reformed hacker and a seasoned security expert delving into today’s most pressing cyber security challenges.

Lastly, wrapping up Wednesday with a grand finale: leaders across the world agree that GenAI will significantly transform their industry, but recent research says only four in 10 have a defined strategy. Where are you on your journey, and what questions would you like answered to accelerate your use cases? Join us at 3 PM PT for exclusive access to Dell’s AI Enablement Senior Vice President Matt Baker in a very special GenAI Ask Me Anything.
