For many legacy companies, simply getting started is one of the hardest things about integrating enterprise AI (EAI). Business leaders struggle to find the right entry point to introduce AI technologies, and they are understandably frustrated when the promised benefits of EAI don’t materialize.
Beth Partridge, assisted by Nick Paquin and Annie O’Connor, shares a breakthrough approach to decoding machine learning opportunities, based on embracing EAI as a core competency. Through lectures and hands-on activities in breakout groups, you’ll gain a clear understanding of what AI can do for your business and how to go about implementing it.

Finding, attracting, placing, and developing the next generation of technology and IT professionals requires something other than the scattershot approach to professional matchmaking that drives most outsourced recruitment efforts.

Living and working in some of the most challenging environments for business has taught her how to simultaneously communicate change and advocate for those most affected by it.
