Location: Clinton

After crossing the first AI implementation milestone, CIOs and CTOs are often faced with a daunting question: what next? AI engineering “best practice” doesn’t exist yet, making scaling and sustaining these solutions a challenge. Accenture has developed an easy-to-use methodology for achieving predictable, high-speed production releases and sustaining reliable AI solutions. Based on experience implementing AI-led automation for more than 100 clients, Accenture’s approach helps align AI and business needs and benefits and establish a well-defined methodology for the entire AI engineering lifecycle from data engineering (ingesting, cleansing, normalizing and optimizing) to selecting the right AI models. It also helps identify key change management actions for people, processes and technology. This session is designed for leaders and change makers in large enterprises who want to make AI adoption successful.
