Artificial Intelligence:

AI is Cool. But is it relevant to my business? Probably, and here is how

Presented by:
George Danner, Technology Futurist, Author and AI Consultant

AI is the most talked-about subject among business leaders today, getting top billing at places like the World Economic Forum in Davos. There is a general feeling that AI advances in the last two years are important, perhaps even groundbreaking, but most firms struggle with the relevance of AI to their own businesses. AI seems like a far away dream, not a practical technology that companies large and small can exploit today.

History has taught us that waiting for the “right moment” to jump onto a technology platform is a fool’s errand at best. Alternatively, the smart money seeks to understand the technology and the various ways to experiment with its use, in low-risk fashion, along the company’s value chain.

We have been applying AI for 25 years, long before it was cool. We’ve made many, many mistakes. We’ve discovered some surprising truths. Along the way we’ve learned a great deal about AI and its practical applications that almost any business can embrace. Yes, AI is powerful, and applied thoughtfully it can propel many businesses to a level of efficiency and value creation that is unmatched by its AI-challenged competitors. But just like any powerful force, it must be managed carefully.

In our talk we will be reaching out to practically-oriented business leaders and technologists who are intrigued by the headlines, but are at a loss as to how (and where, and how much) to start with AI. We will offer a few methodical and systematic steps to get to a smarter, 2.0 version of the company that you are today.
