VIRTUAL PRESENTATION: Driving Business Value with Big Data and AI: A Case for Pilot-First Enterprise AI Projects

  • For every success story, there are numerous examples of failure to implement and scale AI. Misalignment between leadership and technologists, an unclear understanding of what’s possible, or the lack of organizational support can drive organizations to a never-ending PoC cycle. It prevents them from harnessing AI’s actual potential value.
  • In this session, we will explore the technological and use case landscape of AI projects. We will also explore a pilot-first approach to maximize the scalability of enterprise AI projects.

ON-DEMAND FIRESIDE CHAT: The What, Why and How of Responsible AI

  • Artificial Intelligence is here to stay and is rapidly being adopted in virtually every domain – from healthcare to finance and public safety and entertainment, to name a few. However, most machine intelligence powered systems today are black-boxes that often function in oblique, invisible ways for developers, compliance staff, and regulators.
  • This has led to increased business risks and ethical concerns about how AI may harm the most vulnerable.
  • This session will discuss the importance of responsible AI through real-life Responsible AI use cases, with an overarching focus on accelerating adoption and impact of human-centric AI.

VIRTUAL PRESENTATION: Data has gravity: Cognition as a Service on a distributed learning framework for performance, cost efficiency and privacy

  • The commoditisation of machine learning and AI is shifting the supply and demand of resources and insights for organisations. Where teams of data scientists were once required to solve challenges, solutions can now be purchased on-demand as a service 
  • By abstracting away the complexity, Cognition as a Service (CaaS) disrupting the Data Science and AI market by making solutions accessible, on-demand, to all in a fast and cost-effective way. 
  • Industrialised machine learning and robust high-end pre-packaged solutions are moving the needle for big and small players that want to access AI and ML solutions 
  • The competitive advantage is gained through distributed learning frameworks to deliver improved performance and cost-efficiency, and address key privacy concerns 
  • Machine Learning solutions are moving from a tailored approach, where frameworks are built around companies, towards a faster and more scalable one, where frameworks are built around challenges

VIRTUAL PRESENTATION: Beyond accuracy: building demand forecasting systems people can actually use everyday

From fast food chains trying to avoid a chicken nugget shortage, to the NHS trying to stay one step ahead of a pandemic, good demand forecasting is what keeps the world running smoothly. AI can be a powerful tool for anticipating demand, but it needs to be deployed in such a way that it is actionable and impactful. It’s no mean feat to extract demand insights that are accurate, detailed enough to be actionable, and easy for users to understand. The session will explain how to build demand forecasting systems that organisations can actually use and trust to make better operational decisions covering:

    • Examples of where demand forecasting can be used in everyday business settings to drive value
    • The common challenges and pitfalls encountered when implementing demand forecasting
    • Practical guidance on how to deploy demand forecasting successfully with recent case study examples of this in action

  • Current mainstream AI in industry is Narrow AI, that can only learn one specific task by memorising a tremendous amount of labelled data. Narrow AI faces great challenges like high cost of data labelling, lack of explainability, poor support for multiple tasks and vulnerability to outliers in data.
  • Generative AI, like GAN, GPT-3 and Alpha Go, attracts great attention as it shows deep neural networks can learn itself to generate high quality data superior to Narrow AI.
  • This talk will give insights into recent trend of applied Generative AI in computer vision, natural language processing and automated planning.

VIRTUAL PRESENTATION: How Orchestration Optimizes Value

  • Big Data projects and Data Pipelines have merged into the technology fabric of every organization. The tools for building and running application workflows must be not only easily versionable and testable but they must also provide access to business and non-technical users.  
  • They must deliver the operational richness required to operate complex applications and deliver business services in accordance with service level commitments.  
  • In this talk, Regardt Jacobs explains the need of production-ready application workflow orchestration for data-intensive applications and how automation, Big Data and IoT helped a leading vehicle manufacturer to cut fleet downtime.
