Schedule: AI in the Enterprise sessions

In order to successfully deploy AI and automation technologies, organizations must work through a series of assessments:

  • What are the key technologies (hardware and software) and what are their limitations?
  • How much data does one need to use these technologies?
  • How does one organize and hire for AI?
  • What types of problems or tasks lend themselves to automation? What are some initial use cases one can consider?

We’ve assembled trainings, tutorials, and sessions designed to help attendees understand how to move forward with best practices, tools, and technologies used at many leading companies.
