CONVERGENCE OF ALL TECHNOLOGIES
AI, RPA, big data, cloud, AR/VR, quantum computing – these are just a few technologies that have made their respective hypes and continue to do so.
As a decision maker in an organisation implementing these technologies, ensuring that the right technologies are adopted and that all technologies compliment each other is the most crucial attribute to ensure a digital success.

9:50 am - 10:10 am NATIONAL TRAILBLAZER: Aligning definitions and ensuring we know what they are: AI - Machine Learning - Deep Learning - Chatbots - NLP - RPA.

Recent AI hype has caused misalignment in defining different applications of AI and their use in operations. Ensuring that every individual and organisation understands the real definitions and differences in different applications of AI is crucial to understand the best technology to invest in and gain maximum return on investment

Key question: How to, why and where to use different arms of AI?
  • Ensuring an organisation needs it and is prepared to adopt it

10:10 am - 10:30 am PANEL DISCUSSION: Tech Integrity: All technologies promise enhancing your organisation. How do they all come together in ensuring maximum results?

With plenty of technologies at our disposal, and all promising to enhance efficiency, engagement and advancement, choosing the right one to invest in is one of the toughest tasks leaders face today. Even if organisations have the budgets and capabilities to accommodate all technologies, knowing how they come together and compliment each other is key to a successful transformation.

Key question: How do we maximise the impact of all the available technologies and make them work together to enable a successful business transformation?

HUMANS, ETHICS AND REGULATIONS
Addressing AI’s influence on humans and how humans have been adjusting to AI will be the most important factor to an AI-powered society. From regulating AI to using AI ethically to the misconceptions that humans have on AI taking over their jobs, the human side of AI will shape the future of AI and humanity.

Everyone talks about harnessing the future with AI and how AI can help organisations and societies be more efficient. But harnessing the future of AI itself will be key to mass adoption, human acceptance and use
