AI: Deliver innovation that's business-smart

Turn Artificial Intelligence into a powerful ally

Tuesday 1st May, 2018| 09:00 - 13:00 plus networking lunch | London

Predictions about tech trends can often be hit and miss. Not so for Artificial Intelligence (AI). It’s already shattering and rebuilding mature markets and helping the public sector to deliver clever, more efficient and valuable services.

How will you join those organisations breaking new ground with AI? Crucially, how will you make it smart enough to deliver transformative value?

Learn why AI requires a fundamental change in the way analytics is approached, at a half day event on Tuesday 1st May 2018: one that is future-proof for developments such as AI / Machine and Deep Learning, to support innovation and to apply it to real-world use cases.

We look forward to seeing you there and supporting your AI ambitions.
