Making sense of too much data: Is AI the solution?

Thursday, 30 November 2017, 07:30 am — Thursday, 30 November 2017, 08:45 am

Artificial intelligence is poised to transform businesses across a wide variety of sectors - and probably more than you think. The applications of AI can range from discovering trends in data to mitigating market risks, enhancing customer service and analysing trillions of documents across a company’s servers to find compliance failures. An increase in innovation minimises redundant costs and potentially generates new revenue streams and profit.  During a panel discussion panellists will discuss which industries will benefit the most from the adoption and application of AI, and why entrepreneurs and consumers alike stand to benefit significantly from the technology.  Our readiness and enthusiasm for AI varies, raising serious questions about how businesses can best adopt AI and get the most business value from it.

Join us at our industry discussion breakfast series where our panellists will discuss:

  • How will artificial intelligence drive innovation?
  • How will artificial intelligence drive faster and better business decision making?
  • Are managers on the same page when it comes to AI?
  • What part will people play in this process?

Light breakfast included. All profits go into a student scholarship fund.
