Session Agenda

Join us for an overview of how organizations are leading a changing business landscape with AI and machine learning. We will cover fundamental concepts paired with case studies across multiple industries. We will also answer important and common questions, such as:

  • What exactly is AI?
  • How is AI transforming companies and the economy?
  • Can my problem be solved with off-the-shelf AI or do I need to train my own?
  • My AI gives me answers, but can it tell me how it got those answers?
  • How do I ensure my AI does not discriminate against groups of people?
  • I want to use AI, but where do I begin?

Bring your own questions or curiosity as we discuss the future of AI in business.

This webinar is for a non-technical audience. The relevant use case studies span a variety of domains but can easily be applied to your specific industry.
