When we talk about AI, we tend to talk about tools, mathematical models, machine learning algorithms and automated tasks. Rightly so because they all form the foundation for AI!

However, when we distill this information to focus on a business value creation, things get very interesting. We are no longer seeing the models and tools but the impact of the tools, models and algorithms.

This presentation will discuss the concepts of AI, enterprise applications, prominent AI technologies and what it means for your business.

Prior to Data Products, she was a leader at EY Analytics Center of Excellence and has a career that spans academia, research, startups and large corporations.
