From Zero to AI Hero

Add to calendar

AI is here. Will it take over your job? Is it possible to make it beneficial, not detrimental to your career? Kevin Pyles and his team jumped right into the AI universe. Untrained and inexperienced, they realized immediately that they knew nothing, but they were motivated to learn and experiment so they could be part of this revolution. Kevin will show you how his team went from little knowledge of machine learning algorithms, artificial intelligence, and, in some cases, even programming and automation to implementing custom automation frameworks, data analytics, and machine learning. Whether you are a coding novice or expert, manager or engineer, you will walk away with a plan for continuous learning that will take you from zero to AI hero in your career and organization.
