Adopting AI within an enterprise isn’t always obvious or easy. Businesses need to consider the problems they want to solve, whether they have data of the right kind and quality, which deep learning models to use, how to build the right teams to implement their strategy, and many more challenges.
Executives faced with questions like these can get answers during the AI for Business sessions at GTC. Over the course of two days at the world’s premier AI event, the dozen-plus sessions will address the most pressing issues for the people who are leading AI adoption within their businesses.
AI for Business sessions focus on real-world use cases that tackle concerns relevant to a wide variety of industries. The panels and talks are geared for business leaders considering or executing AI at any maturity level – from setting strategy and getting started, to applying solutions across entire organizations.
Highlights from the lineup are below, but be sure not to miss each day’s opening sessions. On Tuesday, March 19, Oliver Schabenberger, chief operating and technology officer at SAS, will discuss the “inevitability” of AI and how businesses can get ahead of the trend that is reshaping the world.
On Wednesday, March 20, join a fireside chat with Walmart CTO Jeremy King in conversation with Rich Karlgaard, publisher of Forbes. They’ll discuss how organizations can accelerate their innovation with AI to solve problems and position themselves for a more successful future. Following this session, Karlgaard will speak with Debra King, CIO at Dupont Agriculture, about the dual responsibilities of building business growth and efficiencies through AI innovation.
AI for Business sessions were some of the most well-attended last year, so don’t delay in registering for GTC — and plan on showing up early to any of the 13 sessions that interest you.
