AI Has a Key Role in Driving the New Normal

Humankind experienced three industrial revolutions along history – all of which raised global income levels and improved the quality of life for society around the globe. In business, on the supplier side, industries adapted new ways of production and service, and also became more innovative and agile based on the technologies which supported that. On the demand side, customers’ needs were mutually corresponsive, with increasing needs in quantity.   

The fourth industrial revolution is driven by an exponential growth in computing power and by the availability of substantial amounts of data. In today’s challenging economy, while meeting the demand both for quality and quantity, automatization supports efficiency, profitability and sustainable growth. Although automation, accelerated by AI, has the power to put organisations into a competitive position, most companies and industries are still at the beginning of their journey. Those organisations that exploit AI to reinvent processes, this powerful technology will very soon become the new norm.

Expected event takeaways:

Through interviews, keynotes, practical use cases, and in-depth discussion, we will look at the development and challenges of AI adoption from various industry perspectives. We will get an insight into how some organisations have already implemented AI into their processes, and how that contributes to their success and business continuity during these challenging times. We will get hands-on advice on how to implement and develop processes, products, and services supported by AI, and how to pave our roads to the future where AI is a norm both for business and society.
