Featured Speakers at IT Hot Topics Conference
You don’t have to fly to Las Vegas, San Francisco, or outside the U.S. to see the world’s top speakers. If you’ve attended IT Hot Topics before, you already know we bring today’s top speakers to you.
As seen at Black Hat, Defcon, RSA Conference, Shmoocon, and many more, our speakers turn heads every year.
Plus, their content isn’t just off-the-shelf. We work with each keynote and featured speaker to craft unique and timely messaging just for you.
We (and especially I) spend a lot of time each year finding speakers and content our attendees are looking for, so I’m eager to share with you our featured speakers for 2019. Look for additional speakers confirmed as our Content Advisory team finalizes their selections.
Meet some of this year’s #ITHT2019 talent.

Diana’s sessions at IT Hot Topics Conference

  • Keynote: ” Exploring the Ethics of AI and ML ”
    Diana and I had quite a few laughs while we worked out the keynote details. This isn’t your typical ML/AI talk- it will really get you thinking!
    In this talk we’ll share the principle ethics of AI & ML and engage in a discussion about how we can all work together to forward AI and ML use responsibly. If we don’t work to eliminate bias and build diversity in, we could end up with outcomes even worse than racist chatbots like Tay.
