AGENDA

Transform 2020

Pre-Event: VB Transform workshops & Roundtables

VB Transform Workshops are led by today's leading AI experts with a focus on business applications through custom and scalable solutions. Aimed at helping organizations better understand AI, automation, analytics, and more, these day-long sessions are focused on bringing enterprise leaders the technologies they need to accelerate their business. 

Go deeper on specific AI topics to better understand how to grow and scale your business - designed to business executives. Register today and join the AI thought leaders for one day of quality conversations and in-depth discussion among leaders eager to advance AI and technology initiatives.

Day 1: Technology & Automation Summit

One of the key applications of AI is to automate relatively less complex processes thereby making organizations more efficient and freeing up humans for more complex tasks. At the VB Transform Technology & Automation Summit, we discuss various topics such as AI-first application development, AI-led process optimization, identifying the right data to power AI and create business impact, the importance of hyper-personalization in AI, putting together the right team and getting pan-organization buy in to effectively implement AI, the major trends around AutoML, RPA and key algorithm and modeling trends such as transfer learning, reinforcement learning, synthetic data and more.

In implementing these AI technologies, organizations need to also focus on some of the big picture concerns around explainability, trust, accuracy, human eccentricity, and eliminating biases such as gender, race, etc.

Hear from industry leaders and luminaries who will talk about their journeys and learnings in implementing these technologies, how they unlocked value/ROI from them, and their thoughts about what the future holds.

Day 2: CONVERSATIONAL AI Summit

Conversational AI is being leveraged by organizations across the board in the form of text chatbots, and voice assistants which use NLP to look beyond rules to truly understand intent and deliver a great user experience. By effectively automating these customer interactions, they can scale their business operations very quickly. Companies have made several recent advances in terms of leveraging big data to deliver highly personalized and relevant content and integrating all their systems to ensure that the virtual agent is able to ‘hold the conversation’ and provide a seamless and delightful interaction for the user.

In implementing these AI technologies, organizations need to also focus on some of the big picture concerns around fairness, explainability, and gender neutrality of these virtual agents.

Hear from industry-leading practitioners and luminaries who will talk about their journeys and learnings in implementing these technologies, how they unlocked value/ROI from them, and their thoughts about what the future holds.

Day 3: IoT/AI at the Edge & Computer Vision Summit

In recent years, we have seen the confluence of some big technology trends such as the Internet of Things (IoT), deploying AI on devices rather than on the cloud, the rapid increase in compute power, and the advances in accuracy and speed of computer vision models. This is creating an ecosystem that can deliver powerful business applications that were hitherto unthinkable. At the VB Transform IoT/AI at the Edge & Computer Vision Summit, we discuss various topics such as ensuring greater user privacy, enabling lower latency, enabling better search and personalization, enabling and accelerating automation, delivering real-time intelligence, etc.

In implementing these AI technologies, organizations need to also focus on some of the big picture concerns around security, privacy, governance, accuracy, explainability, and eliminating biases such as gender, race, etc.

Hear from industry leaders who will talk about their journeys and learnings in implementing these technologies, how they unlocked value/ROI from them, and their thoughts about what the future holds.

How AI can benefit from having a more diverse and inclusive team

It is a well-accepted fact that diverse teams with different worldviews, cultures, and thought processes are more innovative, creative and perform at higher levels than those that lack this diversity. Applying this same learning to AI, it is important that AI models are also built by and learn from a diverse team. Moreover, it is a moral imperative, because it ensures fairness. How can organizations build such diverse AI teams and help make their AI more robust and fair? Join a select group of senior industry executives in this 60-minute roundtable which includes a panel discussion to brainstorm and exchange ideas.
