AI Family Feud: Playing the AI vs. Traditional Automation Game

Let’s answer some questions everyone has about AI and put our two teams of experts to the test on their knowledge of different methods for automation and intelligent strategies. In this game show, you will see two teams of experts face off and respond to questions that we all face on how to adapt and understand new AI technologies and what use cases work for the different business challenges you face daily. We will also explore the academic versus the practical, real-world application of tools that are hitting the market. Each team will be given the same testing challenge at the beginning of the conference, and we will see their results live on stage during the face-off in the style of the famous game show Family FeudJoin Tariq King, Jason Arbon, Jeremias Rößler, Jonathan Lipps, and facilitator Jennifer Bonine, with audience participation through real-time questions and polling. You will leave with an understanding of artificial intelligence, machine learning, tooling options in the marketspace, marketing buzz versus reality, what applications make sense for AI, and use cases that work for AI in your organizations. Come get an idea of how to get started on your AI journey, as well as advanced resources for people who need more of an AI challenge.
