Stepping Stones in an AI Strategy for the Workplace
In the past five years, startups and large companies have been building up their “artificial intelligence quotient” (AIQ). For big companies, AI presents the opportunity for business transformation. For entrepreneurs, it is the asymmetric tool they can use to take on much larger competitors. Join Accenture’s Global Head of AI for Products, Shyam Thyagaraj, as he shares some insights from Accenture’s most recent research and learn how to “boost your AIQ”. The theory will be followed by a real business use case. This session will include a casual discussion-style lecture from Shyam as well as a facilitated group ideation session to help participants define and share their own insights around how start-ups to big companies can better collaborate in this space to truly capture the value of AI.
