Rob Bassett-CrossCEO and Founder of Adarga
Our aim is both to educate and constructively challenge our audience, to cut through the AI hyperbole and enable everyone who attends (the technical and the non-technical, alike), to enhance their practical understanding of this important subject.
What are the important dependencies that exist between the human and the machine in the effective design and implementation of AI systems?
What are the latest technical advances in Artificial Intelligence?
What are the practical and real-world challenges in productionising and applying AI, and the challenges facing the people who build the models?
What critical role and responsibility do global corporate and public sector leaders have in embracing, navigating and harnessing the blistering pace of these exciting advances?
