Join 451 Research and Morrison & Foerster in Menlo Park, CA on November 12th at the invite-only Cycle of Innovation Summit to explore this year's theme: machine learning in the enterprise and the M&A response.

In this session, you will see newly released survey data on current usage, future adoption plans and leading use cases for machine learning (ML) technologies in the enterprise. How are startups and established players creating value for companies with ML? We will then turn to the financial impact and look at how acquirers are responding to the rapidly evolving marketplace. We will start with a general overview of the booming tech M&A market, and then turn our attention to M&A in machine learning. Are buyers putting their money toward the leading applications we’ve identified? Where do we see gaps that are not yet being addressed? What kinds of companies and technologies are seeing the highest valuations, and why? Where are we likely to see machine-learning-related deals in the future, and who are some likely buyers and targets?

Our analysts and leading industry professionals will address these topics in panel discussions and presentations in this information-packed morning session. For more details, see the agenda below.
