Keynote: Why the Human Element Remains Essential in Applied AI

Can you remove the human element from human interactions? More importantly, should you?

A lot has been made of the relationship between humans and machines. News segments seem to pit them against each other, but the truth is it’s not humans vs. machines, but rather, it’s a symbiotic relationship. Bringing the two together in a true partnership is the only way to realize the incredible potential of AI and the efficiencies and cost savings it can deliver.

In this keynote session, you will hear:

  • A case study on our journey to automate the crowd
  • Thoughts on how to balance AI and human skills
  • Ways to incorporate AI in a roadmap in a meaningful way

Lessons learned from applying conversational AI

AI implementation has grown 270 percent in the past four years, including 37 percent in the past year alone. The rise is due to the maturation of AI capabilities, which have become an integral part of customer service strategies. In particular, conversational AI is helping businesses across industries engage customers more effectively.

So, what benefits are businesses actually seeing? How did they get started? And what are the lessons learned? Join IBM Watson expert Mitch Maason to discuss best practices and highlight the outcomes you could expect. Our expert will also dive into the benefits of Watson Assistant, IBM’s virtual assistant technology, and the most common customer service AI use cases.

Why the Cruise Industry will Drive Enterprise AI Innovation in the Next Decade

Enterprise AI garners little attention in the media today, but it’s potential economic impact dwarfs that of all other areas or AI combined. And it’s surprising to many that leading edge innovations in Enterprise AI will emerge from the cruise industry.  A cruise company is a unique operation.  It comprises a set of semi-independent, floating, self-contained cities, each coupled to a full-spectrum onshore business operation.  Data are being collected everywhere and at all times, to improve all dimensions of the guest experience, and to make the operation run more effectively and more safely.

This presentation will describe how Enterprise AI is a different animal.  How it’s much broader, more complex, and fundamentally different from the more mature and narrower areas of AI (such as NLP or computer vision).  We will describe different approaches and skills needed to be successful in Enterprise AI, and how companies are beginning to apply these to high-impact business problems.  We will also talk about specific applications in the cruise industry, which cover such areas as pricing & revenue management, hotel operations, predictive maintenance & industrial IoT, social media tracking & inference, promotions optimization, supply chain & logistics, and beyond.

We will also discuss the skills and career pathways in Enterprise AI, and how to best gain entry into this emerging, world-changing discipline.

Approaches to partnering for data sciences in healthcare

Data sciences innovation is flourishing around the world, but how do we harness that innovation to transform the healthcare industry? How do entrepreneurs, academics, and the healthcare industry work together to help take products and technologies from concept to commercialization, and ultimately, impact the lives of millions worldwide? Both industry and entrepreneurs benefit from partnerships, but they can often be challenging to build and maintain, particularly in novel technology areas such as AI which have not yet fully established trust in their value.  At Johnson & Johnson Innovation, we build relationships and create customized collaborations with regional entrepreneurs, universities and institutes developing early- to mid-stage innovations across Pharmaceutical, Medical Device and Consumer Health sectors. I will discuss some of the unique challenges related to data sciences and AI on both sides of the partnering equation, and suggest approaches which facilitate partnering to accelerate the impact of this technology in healthcare.
