AI Strategy: Research in Practice

Room 202 | Day 1 : Download Your Program

Making Artificial Intelligence research a reality in business takes a lot of time, effort, and unknown challenges. As business leaders, how can you prepare for something that’s barely been done before?

The journey to implement a new Artificial Intelligence project is full of valuable lessons, so this year, we’re bringing them to the stage at our Research in Practice conference track.

Taking place in the strategic AI room, business leaders (both non-technical and technical) will learn from cutting edge case studies and explore the ways we can put AI research into practice in business settings.
