Accelerate Your Journey to AI

AI is revolutionizing the way organizations work, challenging industries to rethink business models and providing the means for companies to embrace data-driven decision-making like never before. However, getting started with AI isn’t easy. No matter how sophisticated your machine-learning algorithms, they’re only as good as the data that feeds them.

Success depends on an organization’s ability to apply an architected multicloud model and approach to how it accelerates toward AI through mastering four levels: collecting data, organizing data, analyzing data with AI everywhere and infusing AI-driven business processes. It’s this type of model that has differentiated the successful from the struggling among AI early adopters.

During this session, get a behind-the-scenes look at how companies are leveraging open source, managing the full AI lifecycle, and the essential lessons they’ve learned along the way, all focused to help you on your journey to AI.

Real World AI Auditing, Tracking and Transparency

Making AI auditable and explainable in the real world is hard but not impossible.  We’ll show you how to make AI auditable today and get you ready to embrace the latest breakthroughs in explainable AI tomorrow.
With algorithms making more and more decisions in our lives, from who gets a job, to who gets hired and fired, and even who goes to jail, it’s more critical than ever to get our intelligent systems talking to us so people can step in when things go wrong.

In the coming decade, organizations will face incredible pressure from regulators and the general public and that means every team needs a plan in place to find and fix mistakes fast or risk a PR nightmare and face financial consequences.

But you don’t have to wait until it’s too late, you can make your AI/ML systems auditable and transparent right now with a combination of new technologies and infrastructure specifically designed for audibility and a few classic IT techniques your team already knows and knows well

3rd Gen BI and Analytics: How Business Intelligence is evolving with AI

Artificial intelligence is not purely “artificial.” The ideal approach amplifies human intuition with machine intelligence to create a powerful multiplier effect. That’s augmented intelligence. In this session, Elif will talk about the wonder of how human brains works. She will use analogies between how the brain processes information and data analytics. She will cover the recent product innovations that combines the power of Associative Indexing technology with Cognitive capabilities, enabling 3rd generation business intelligence technologies.

Please join the session to hear about Associative Indexing (x) Augmented Intelligence = AI2, the recent technology innovations leading exponentially more brainpower for users and where AI is making its way into business intelligence and what that might enable for businesses.

AI Improves SW Testing, And SW Testing Improves AI: The Good, The Bad And The Ugly

Recent Forrester research shows that the benefit of AI in testing is to augment tester’s intelligence to improve and speed up testing. Not to “automate” testers out of their job. On the other hand, AI infused applications made of automatic (traditional) sw and autonomous (models) sw can leverage consolidated testing practices and tools to support enterprises in automating testing for their AI Infused applications. But testing for the unknown is the hard bit. Featured speaker, Forrester Research VP and Principal Analyst Diego Lo Giudice will present his recent and ongoing research outcomes on both AI in testing and testing AI. In this presentation you will hear about:
1.       The Path To Autonomous Testing Goes Through Testers Augmentation
2.       AI Infused Applications (AIIA) need more and better testing, why ?
3.       How Can We Better Test AIIA ?
4.       Testing the unknown is largely unknown.

Realtime Contextual Product Recommendations

Recommendation systems are all around us. E-commerce companies like Amazon recommend products we are likely to buy based on our browsing behavior. Netflix suggests what shows we should watch based on our binging habits. Spotify builds a personalized playlist we would enjoy listening to, based on their understanding of what musical genre we are into.
In this talk, we will explore recent advances in the area of product recommendations in both research and practice. We will see how machine learning, design thinking, and solid data engineering principles are combined to create an engaging customer experience that positively impacts the bottom line.
We will look at how we use various deep learning architectures to obtain image and text embeddings that supplement user and product-based features to generate product recommendations that align closely with a consumer’s aesthetic preferences.

Product Management in the Artificial Intelligence Era

In recent years, professions like AI product management became popular because organizations from all industries are striving for AI leadership to enter the AI race and gain competitive advantage. However, does ML algorithm programming skills make these professions so valuable? The answer is no; technology has always been just the tool. What companies need is AI strategists who can bridge the business, product, and technology to reach sustainable profitability. In this presentation, I’ll share with you my experience from eBay and Yahoo AI initiatives and show how the product management profession changed in the AI era to add value to the business.
