MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Aug. 14, 2017 – Hyper-competitive markets that characterize the world’s economy demand a virtually instantaneous response by businesses.

During the session titled, Artificial Intelligence: Accelerating Innovation with Fast and Agile Decision Making, Frost & Sullivan explains why Artificial Intelligence is not the end game, rather the enabler. In order to accelerate decision making, advanced analytics utilizing artificial intelligence are necessary to identify alternatives and develop innovative products and services.

Many people miss the point of business, any business, in today’s global market place,”stated Stratecast | Frost & Sullivan Consumer Communications Services Manager Michael Jude. “Businesses exist to create intellectual property by leveraging their data assets.  At the speed of modern business, this is increasingly difficult.  AI provides the edge that businesses need to get ahead of the decision curve and make the best use of their big data pools.”

In this session, participants will gain insight on the following:

  • Blueprint for identifying AI opportunities. Not everything can benefit from AI. It is important to know what constitutes a good target for AI technology. 
  • Pitfalls for leveraging AI capabilities. Most AI applications are heavy on the artificial and light on the intelligence. Learn how to tell the difference between legitimate AI and applications which only say they are.
  • Case studies in AI: Critical success factors and lessons learned. 

Notable Speakers include:

  • Abhi Yadav, Chief Executive Officer – Zylotech
  • Arshak Navruzyan, Vice President, Distributed Artificial Intelligence, Sentient Technologies
  • Brandon McGee, Executive Director – Mobile, AI & Growth Marketing, Harland Clarke
