Artificial Intelligence: Underpinnings of a Disruptive Wave
Live Webinar | 9:30 pm | Free
AI has been around for decades but is this time different? We will continue our discussion on AI and its implications with the practitioners of the trade who have decades of experience in AI and ML and how such techniques might be applied to real-life scenarios like IoT, mobile devices, personalized services, etc. They understand what problems is it really good for, and can answer if we are entering the golden age of AI? We will also tackle the pressing ethics questions on how to deal with personalization and the use of AI. We will separate the hype from ground reality and give you things to think about for your own business.
