Much as electricity transformed the human experience, AI is a fundamental technology shift that will radically revolutionize how we work and live. You've heard the hype, but what’s different this time, and how can you be early to the game? 

This seminar opens the world of AI to you. We will demystify the hype, and stay away from the scary stories, and provide a practical approach to the field – what’s working today, what’s around the bend, and a framework for examining the opportunities within your organization.  

An interactive session, it will cover the following topics:

  • First principals – definitions of AI, machine learning, deep learning, etc., and a high level overview of the algorithms being used
  • What’s different this time around
  • State of the art – where we are today and current uses
  • Look around the curve – where are the biggest companies investing their research dollars and startups that are changing the game
  • Framework to examine your organization and look for opportunities to begin experimenting
