Warmup Event #2:
The growing impact of AI on business.  

Thursday August 23, 5.30pm to 7.30pm
We are quick to talk about Artificial Intelligence - how it will improve our lives; how it will redefine the way we do business or how superintelligent machines will destroy us all in an attempt to collect paper clips!

But how do we define AI? What does the spectrum of intelligence contain and what is possible in business today, vs the stuff of science fiction?

Join us to explore how organisations are deploying AI strategies, whether they are centred around new projects, organisational efficiencies or for an improved customer experience. Plus learn how to drive around the biggest obstacles of implementation and the easiest starting points.

We also promise to dive into common threads around how AI is going to impact our jobs and who should be held responsible if it all goes out of control!
