Just two days stand between you and serious savings on tickets to TC Sessions: Robotics + AI 2020. This annual day-long event draws the most innovative and visionary technologists, researchers and investors from two game-changing industries — last year we hosted 1,500 attendees. Make a smart investment. Buy an early-bird ticket before prices go up on January 31 and save $150.

Looking for exposure? We have two fantastic ways to put your early-stage startup in front of a highly influential group of VCs and technologists. Check this out.

Apply to compete in Pitch Night. Ten startups will compete in a mini pitch-off at a private event the night before the conference. A panel of VC judges will choose five finalists to pitch again the next day from the TC Sessions Main Stage. All 10 teams will each receive two free tickets to the event. Submit your application here by February 1. We’ll notify selected startups by February 15.

Buy a Startup Exhibitor Package and demo at the event. You’d better jump on this opportunity, and fast — we have only two packages left. The $2,200 price includes four tickets to the event. Bring your crew and quadruple your networking potential.

Now let’s talk about the kind of programming you can expect. We’re talking a full day of presentations, panel discussions, world-class speakers, workshops, robot demos and plenty of time for networking. Here’s a sample of what’s on tap (you can check out the day’s agenda here):

  • The Next Century of Robo-Exoticism: In 1920, Karl Capek coined the term “robot” in a play about mechanical workers organizing a rebellion to defeat their human overlords. Join expert panelists Abigail De Kosnik (Center for New Media, University of California, Berkeley), David Ewing Duncan (Arc Fusion), Ken Goldberg (UC Berkeley College of Engineering) and Mark Pauline (Survival Research) as they discuss cultural views of robots in the context of “Robo-Exoticism,” which exaggerates both negative and positive attributes and reinforces old fears, fantasies and stereotypes.
  • A Live Demo from the Stanford Robotics Club — because everybody loves to see robots in action.
  • Opening the Black Box with Explainable AI: Machine learning and AI models can be found in nearly every aspect of society today, but their inner workings are often as much a mystery to their creators as to those who use them. UC Berkeley’s Trevor Darrell, Krishna Gade of Fiddler Labs and Karen Myers from SRI International will discuss what we’re doing about it and what still needs to be done.

TC Sessions: Robotics + AI 2020 takes place on March 3, but early-bird tickets disappear in just two days. Remember the deadline: January 31. Get the most out of your startup dollars — buy a ticket now and save $150.
