Machine Learning, Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence for Strategic Innovation

Artificial Intelligence (AI) in its multiple forms and guises, has huge potential to change the ways in which we live and work . As we all know, AI, Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Learning(DL) are not new. However, there has been huge investment in the space in recent years and the ability to automatically apply complex mathematical calculations to Big Data – over and over, faster and faster – is a fairly recent development. With steady advances in digitisation and cheap computing power, no wonder people are excited about the possibilities.

Join us for this Post-Conference Focus Day and hear from companies leading the way in this space. Learn about how they are using ML, DL and AI in practical ways within their businesses, to improve internal efficiencies, drive profits, better serve their customers, fight crime and even save lives.
