The Real-Time (R)Evolution: Embracing AI Advancements 
December 4-6 | Global | Fully Virtual | Free 

“In today’s fast-paced world, the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) into real-time applications and services has become increasingly prevalent. However, AI has often been met with skepticism, fear, or misconceptions within the real-time community. “Real-Time (R)Evolution: Embracing AI Advancements” is an initiative aimed at providing a clear understanding of artificial intelligence (AI) concepts, technologies, and applications to the members of the RealTime Community. 

The primary goal of Real-Time (R)Evolution: Embracing AI Advancements is to bridge the knowledge gap and empower community members to leverage AI effectively in their real-time operations. This involves breaking down complex AI concepts into simpler terms, providing practical examples and use cases, and addressing common misconceptions or fears surrounding AI. By enhancing their understanding of AI concepts and facilitating practical implementation, RTC will hopefully enable RealTime Community members to unlock the full potential of AI in their respective domains”
