|Overview:||In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of available AI middleware products designed to streamline common development techniques. Their reception by the industry has been spotty, however.

This four-person panel, comprised of people whose experiences and opinions are spread across the spectrum from pro to con, will share their rationale for why existing middleware is good or bad and what changes future products could make to become more appealing to developers.|
