Roundtable Discussions

1:00 PM - 1:45 PM Identifying Use Cases for Artificial Intelligence

Explosive developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI) are having profound impact on how enterprises engage with customers and do business. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn what AI is going to mean for the business, and when it will become mainstream. Attendees will review several very specific use cases and walk away with an understanding of how machine learning is having a powerful impact on companies’ work processes.

Roundtable Discussions

1:00 PM - 1:45 PM Doing Data & Analytics Business in China

This roundtable will focus on understanding the customer base and processes in China. Attendees will leave knowing how to map the Chinese customer journey, increase operational efficiencies, enhance communication with overseas offices, and enter the emerging market in China.

Roundtable Discussions

1:00 PM - 1:45 PM How can Data & Analytics Leaders Increase Their Influence in the Boardroom?

In an era where data has never been more crucial to the business, organizations can benefit tremendously by fully leveraging their current staff and not just pursuing the latest candidate du jour. Yet too often data and analytics leaders don't have sufficient influence in the boardroom to fully enroll other executives in their data and analytics strategy as the full blown competitive advantage that it could be. When you join us for this small executive roundtable you will have an opportunity to discuss with your data and analytics peers the communication, education and mindset shifts that need to happen for you to gain the strongest possible influence in the boardroom.

1:45 PM - 2:15 PM Employing Artificial Intelligence to Increase Benefits From Big Data

In the age of big data companies have more kinds of data available to them than ever before; far more than their current technologies can keep up with. While this multitude of data creates the potential to learn much more about the customer base, it also means that all of this data can be hard to access and manage; and overwhelming to analyze. As such, it’s critical to implement an AI solution that can respond to ever-changing information and make adjustments based on what it learns.

Join this session as we learn how to:
· Identify the AI-based tools that fit your business and business model
· Determine the types of data that can be made available to AI systems
· Perform a data “audit” that lets you know what data is and isn’t being collected
· Explore technology platforms that can unify all of the data from multiple sources
· Implement an AI solution that works with your data to deliver what you need to drive business

3:35 PM - 4:15 PM Fostering and Retaining AI Practitioners to Successfully Integrate AI into the Enterprise

Data and Analytics Executives have seen the potential for Artificial Intelligence but have struggled to make it a valuable opportunity for the Enterprise. The largest inhibitor to applications of AI is the shortage of intellectuals with the technical skills to implement AI and machine learning, and then retain them long enough to drive effective changes and outcomes. Going forward, it is critical to develop the necessary skills and identify the best candidates to promote as potential AI leaders. In this session hear best practices and use cases for advancing skills for artificial intelligence.
