Over the past year, executives at nearly every company have come to see AI as the next set of technologies that can become a critical driver of value. The AI Conference grew up alongside this realization. Whereas our initial audience was made up mostly of technical practitioners in new roles (data scientist, deep learning engineer, AI engineer, AI researcher), our audience now also includes high-level executives with responsibilities in technology, marketing, finance, research and development, and general management. In order to better serve this leadership audience, we will introduce more non-technical content in 2018.
At the center of the Business Summit within the AI Conference is a series of Executive Briefings: 40-minute overviews that cover topics of specific interest to executives (CxOs, vice presidents of technology, chief data officers, IT directors, etc.). At every AI Business Summit we'll cover a set of core topics that are of immediate concern to nearly every executive, as well as additional topics relevant to the local audience.
These Briefings describe recent technical progress in the field, but more importantly they include actionable frameworks that executives can immediately apply to their own work. Presentations at the AI Business Summit should focus on managerial discussion and be accessible to a wide range of practitioners and generalists. Because these are Briefings aimed at decision-makers we are looking for vendor-neutral perspectives and content.
