Leaders from OpenAI, Chevron, Nvidia, Kaiser Permanente, and Capital One to Speak at VentureBeat Transform 2024

Leaders from prominent companies such as OpenAI, Chevron, Nvidia, Kaiser Permanente, and Capital One are set to share their insights at the upcoming VentureBeat Transform 2024 event. The three-day conference, to be held in San Francisco, will focus on the transformative potential of generative AI, also known as GenAI.

Despite skepticism from some quarters, industry visionaries including Bill Gates, Reid Hoffman, Sundar Pichai, and Mark Zuckerberg have acknowledged the profound impact that generative AI can have on reshaping the world. However, ordinary users have remained skeptical, particularly in light of recent controversies surrounding AI companies.

One such controversy involves Perplexity, which was called out by WIRED Magazine for allegedly scraping its content without permission. OpenAI, on the other hand, has faced criticism for prioritizing “shiny products” over AI safety, leading to the departure of its co-founder and former chief scientist, Ilya Sutskever, who has founded Safe Superintelligence Inc. to focus on securing superintelligent AI models.

Amidst the skepticism and criticism, AI companies and developers continue to push the boundaries of innovation. Runway recently showcased its new generative AI video model, Gen-3 Alpha, which promises to produce realistic, high-quality videos within seconds or minutes. Anthropic also made waves by releasing its Claude 3.5 Sonnet model, which has been hailed as one of the most powerful AI models in the world.

While the AI industry is currently experiencing a “trough of disillusionment” according to the Gartner Hype Cycle, many businesses, from startups like Color to Fortune 500 enterprises like Walmart, are already reaping the benefits of AI across various domains.

VentureBeat Transform 2024 will provide a platform for industry leaders to share their experiences and discuss the specific products, tools, and workflows they are utilizing to harness the power of generative AI. With over 70 speakers expected to attend, including representatives from OpenAI, Chevron, Nvidia, Kaiser Permanente, and Capital One, the event aims to facilitate networking and knowledge exchange among the estimated 400+ enterprise decision-makers and entrepreneurs in attendance.

Tickets for the conference are still available, and interested individuals are encouraged to secure their spots promptly.
