Apple Is Planning An In-Person AI Summit Event At The Steve Jobs Theater
Apple is holding an in-person event for its employees that will take place at the Steve Jobs Theater, according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman.
The AI Summit will follow the same format as those that took place before the COVID-19 pandemic, with people sitting in the theater to take in the event. The summit will also be streamed for those employees who can’t be present, too.
This all suggests that Apple is in the process of relaxing its COVID-19 policies, something that could also mean the return of in-person WWDC events.
Apple’s WWDC22 event saw members of the press and select developers invited to Apple Park, although the WWDC keynote was a pre-recorded affair that was shown on big screens while streaming simultaneously around the world.
It was a similar story when Apple announced the iPhone 14 lineup in September, but this AI summit might point to an in-person event kicking off this year. Whether that would be at Apple Park or a convention center as was the case pre-COVID, we’ll have to wait and see.
Interestingly, the event will be held in the Steve Jobs Theater at the Apple HQ and the in-person event will be streamed to employees as well. So, essentially how Apple held media events pre-Covid. Have to wonder if Apple will also return to that for public product launches. https://t.co/uhLv4se9oW
As for the AI summit, little is really known about it because it’s an event designed for Apple employees and, as such, is private. Apple is likely to discuss some of the AI advanced going on in the world of technology and possibly talk about the ways it could use AI further in its own businesses and products.
