Uncovering the keys to long-term success in building and using AI

If you think that artificial intelligence (AI) will one day change the fundamental workings of technology and how we interact with everything from our phones to the family fridge, you’re absolutely wrong. AI has already changed how we build and interact with technology. It is a key enabling force behind huge market trends such as IoT, and it is a principal driver of digital transformation, enabling companies to avoid risk or cost today and to predict what will happen tomorrow.

Whether augmenting human intelligence or circumventing human error, AI has already proven its worth with technology providers across all line of business and digital industry solutions. For instance, advances in language processing have allowed companies to radically improve how they communicate with their customer community. And, in the pharmaceutical industry, AI has enabled drug manufacturers to ingest and understand huge amounts of data so they can more rapidly bring new medications to market.

This flood of innovation and opportunity has created a highly dynamic market wherein both incumbents and start-ups are vying for the same customer and investor dollars with AI-infused hardware, software and expertise. In this webinar, we will explore this fascinating disruptor landscape, answering the following key questions:

● What is driving the AI market itself?
● What are the most compelling AI use cases?
● Who’s succeeding in bringing AI to market and how?
● What are the top AI trends to watch out for in 2018?
● How can your company succeed with AI?
