  • In this presentation, Ramy Nassar tells a story about how AI has shaped the technology landscape of today and what the next 5-10 years might look like as it continues to mature.

    The world is at the cusp of a global transformation that reframes how organizations leverage emerging technology. “AI Now” introduces how Deep learning, advanced analytics, and Generative AI tools like ChatGPT are driving the disruption today.

    The organizations that embrace these tools will be better positioned to outpace and outperform their competitors. “AI Next” helps leaders think strategically about the ROI & business impacts that this technology will drive and how to scale investments from proofs of concepts through to commercialization.

    As powerful as AI is, it’s vital that leaders also consider the risks of working with this technology. Ethical and responsible use of AI is critical for the long-term success of organizations. “AI Never” introduces lines that should never be crossed to ensure the long-term sustainable use of technology.

    Audiences will:

    • Understand how deep learning and generative AI are currently reshaping business strategies.
    • Explore strategic approaches to maximize ROI and scale AI from concept to commercialization.
    • Identify ethical boundaries in AI use to ensure sustainable, long-term organizational success.
