“53 percent of business users are not clear on what they expect from Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning projects” – Tech Pro Research

Artificial Intelligence or AI is possibly one the most important topics of our time, yet we don’t talk enough about the actual impacts it has on businesses. How is AI actually shaping business today and into the future. Businesses still have concerns about implement AI into their business and there’s a notion they’ll be more difficult to implement than previous IT projects. Is it truly AI or is it just pattern learning?

This panel session is here to discuss the reality behind it and how it can be adopted successfully within your business.

While most of us are familiar with the Siri, Alexa and other AI services that live in our every day devices, what does this look like from a business perspective? What is the difference between deep learning and machine learning? As the size of the datasphere explodes, how are processes like real-time decision making and automated AI giving business the edge in market?

ZDNet’s Next Big Thing: The REALity Behind AI in Business dives into how machine learning is automating business in areas like procurement. Is AI helping to protect data, or putting it at greater risk? And ultimately, we’ll argue whether the robots are actually coming to take our jobs or if they’re going to give humans more time to do what we need to do more of; strategy, learning and being more dynamic and creative.

Still not convinced? Check out our sizzle reel from last year’s iteration, ‘The Future of Consumer Technology‘ with CNET’s Brian Cooley.
