Workshop A: The Road to AI - enable your organisation to use data as part of its daily operations

Session Description: Is your organisation getting started on its modern data journey?

  • What is AI & ML anyway?
  • How to determine your strategy that plans where to invest
  • Data management essentials that are needed to avoid costly mistakes
  • What a good use case looks like and how to use it to learn and grow
  • The platforms available and when they should be used
  • How to build the cross functional team that will deliver success
