Machine learning (ML) is the area of artificial intelligence (AI) that focuses on how algorithms "learn" and build on previous knowledge. This emerging technology is already a big part of modern life, such as the automation of various tasks and voice-activated technologies.

ML is closely linked to big data, computer vision, data mining, data analytics, and various other aspects of data management. That’s why machine learning events are a hot destination for data scientists, academia, IT professionals, and even business leaders who want to explore how ML can help their companies — from startups to huge enterprises — grow and adapt.

Below we list 12 of the most anticipated machine learning conferences of 2023 and why you may want to attend.
