2018 EXPO FLOORPLAN
THE PIVOTAL MESSAGES
AI technologies are being implemented across many business functions, yet often quietly and without (yet) receiving the attention or investment needed. There are multiple challenges in implementing AI and many ways of circumnavigating them.
AI talent is both scarce and pivotal to the success of your project, as is the choice of the right solution provider partners for your projects.
The conversation around Ethics, Compliance and Regulatory landscape is highly pertinent; more so for an AI-powered business
Aim for pragmatic, practical, and measurable AI: choose your projects wisely and aim for tangible ROI that will come with strong, quick wins
