Good direction of travel if you want to use AI, smart software and do useful things. Otherwise we're just in the presentation game.

Also useful alone - complex issue - use in realtime for adaptive, in recommendation engines, chatbots, sentiment analysis - all sorts of things. Written a schema for this in my book - AI for learning

Look for correlations between learn & business. Done this with training & sales data. Tons of correlations possible. Ton of other things can be done using data - adaptive learning to sentiment analysis - start with 4 levels - describe, analyse, predict, prescribe

LearnTech confs weird - they love people who say tech is bad. Imagine a baby clothes conf. where the keynote hated babies?

Folk who want to DO things take notes, think, do stuff... most, I agree, are there to confirm old practice - at learning tech conferences that's often 'don't use tech' - hence entertainment keynotes (common in US) & anti-tech keynotes like Audrey Watters...

No. They don't talk or bond with anyone other than their own work colleagues. Quite wrong about forgetting. I write it up, look for ideas (drives me mad to see folk not taking notes) entire 100m business came from one idea in one talk

Problem with this model - people chat to their work colleagues, don't network, don't debate/discuss...

Education World Forum has Princess Beatrice of York as Keynote... I presume it's because her dad was dumped... to be fair... she did once give an interview to Vogue speaking about her own experiences with being bullied for her fashion choices in her early adulthood (Wikipedia)...
