How leading AI teams get full visibility and control over their training data

  • AI is supposed to transform your business but enterprises are finding that it is taking much longer than anticipated to get to full impact. Creating high-quality training data with consistency and transparency are at the heart of the problem. 
  • To accelerate development, learn what workflows and strategies leading AI teams use to prioritize the right data at the right stage of their project’s life cycle in order to iterate on these models quickly. 
  • This approach has been reinforced by new tools such as model assisted labeling and model diagnostics and can lead to more accurate models, faster implementation and 70% cost savings.
  • Based on PG’s current applied AI customer use case, we will cover how a training data platform can be used to enhance your overall labeling operations.

Graph-AI to Combat Fraud in Fintech sector

  • Fraud, especially its dynamic nature, is a major area of concern requiring significant time and resources to isolate from an enormous volume of transaction data.  
  • We have developed an innovative new composite AI based solution that combines graph-rule-based with graph-supervised-learning coupled with explainability to address this problem.  
  • The talk is based on a real world Graph AI (GAI) project undertaken by Larus, Inc. and Fujitsu Research. The project evaluated the incorporation of GAI technology from Fujitsu (Deep Tensor) into an existing rules-based credit card fraud detection application developed by LARUS.

Fireside Chat: AR/VRs Role in Making Technology more Human

If this past year has taught us anything, it’s that humans crave connection – not only with family, friends and coworkers, but also with the businesses, brands, and outlets they interacted with in the “real-world.” While this notion of connection was expressly and deeply challenged due to the pandemic, social media and video enabled people to find a shared sense of presence despite lockdowns worldwide. AR and VR play a pivotal role in helping people to feel present and have emerged as new media that is truly people-centric. With global spending on AR and VR predicted to reach $160B by 2023, we are witnessing a shift in how people will connect in the future. Join Spencer Ante, Head of Editorial at Facebook IQ, as he discusses the major role AR and VR will have in transforming and pushing industries forward. Through insights and real use-cases from Facebook IQ, attendees can expect to walk away with a better understanding of: 

  • The seismic shifts that are happening now to create the AR and VR revolution 
  • The ways AR/VR will transform technology into a tool that is more human and accessible to the masses 
  • The marketing value and application of AR and VR for business
