What you'll learn

  • Explore the digital enterprise evolution in the context of artificial intelligence


The internet giants are fully embracing AI. The services they offer are all aimed at using data to draw a map of the world, and they are using AI to build disruptive approaches that can’t be replicated by established enterprises, which are threatened by these disruptions. However, as Rene Buest explains, most leaders still underestimate the effect this will have on their businesses.

Topics include:

  • The digital enterprise evolution in the context of artificial intelligence
  • How the internet giants are threatening the established economy
  • The importance of becoming an AI-enabled enterprise
  • The steps along this necessary AI journey

This session is sponsored by Arago.
