Practicalities of Artificial Intelligence

Making AI Business-Smart 

Live webinar series

Artificial intelligence (AI) makes it possible for machines to learn from experience, adjust to new inputs and perform human-like tasks. Most AI examples that you hear about today – from chess-playing computers to self-driving cars – rely heavily on deep learning and natural language processing. Using these technologies, computers can be trained to accomplish specific tasks by processing large amounts of data and recognizing patterns in the data.

Join a series of monthly webinars from John Spooner, AI Expert at SAS and colleagues which discuss the practicalities of Artificial Intelligence from hands on experience.

SAS is taking to the road across the world to ensure that organisations are data driven, have insight at their fingertips and are winning. Find out first hand from our experts who will:

Share their real life best practices

Explain challenges and showcase new ways to approaches and solutions

Demonstrate technology and share hands-on tips for execution

Accelerate your machine learning and forecasting capability
Building one machine learning model is easy but data scientists are now having to deal with vast amounts of more data, and consider tens of machine learning algorithms in their bid to build their best model. Add this to the demand that organisations need more and more models to deliver accurate predictions - data scientists are under pressure to accelerate their model building capability.

10.00 am – 10.45am (EST)
Turning understanding into action
Data science is only of benefit if the output can quickly be put into systems that can use them simply and confidently. This webinar will show how machine learning models can be easily deployed into batch, real time and in stream applications at a click of a button

Making decisions where data is generated - not where it lives.

To allow organisations to seize opportunities and spot red flags hidden in the massive torrent of fast-moving data that flows through, it is critical to analyse this high-velocity big data while it's still in motion – before it is stored – so you can take immediate action on what's relevant, and ignore what isn't.

Join this webinar to learn how SAS are addressing these challenges

Ensure AI applications are ethical and well governed
How you will guarantee AI’s responsible and ethical use? How will you use it for the good of your customers, without detrimental or subversive impacts on them or the markets in which you operate? And how will you use the data AI relies upon in both ethically and in alignment with industry regulations? Do you already have the right governance frameworks, storage and security in place?

Join us today to understand more about what you need to consider to ensure that your AI practices are ethical.

The Art of the Practical: Making AI real
What could AI do for my organisation? A review of current real-world examples

There are many different definitions as to what constitutes a system as artificially intelligent, but simply put AI is the science of training systems to emulate human tasks through learning and automation. For organisations wishing to implement AI what tangible use cases should you focus on to deliver business value? This webinar provide real world examples of AI in action, dispelling the myths and focusing on the value it can drive.
  • Real world AI applications generating business value
  • Cross sector practical applications of AI
  • Example of an end-to-end automated AI decision capability
