The ITx 2018 Programme may change without notice
Artificial Intelligence (AI), with all the associated hype, has taken the corporate world by storm. However, the trouble lies within whether there are enough businesses ready to utilise its power; for a rapidly maturing technology some NZ businesses are struggling to keep up.
It is important to remember that the tools that make AI so appealing, are mostly powered by the cloud. Cloud provides a level playing field for innovation and the scalability that AI needs.
There are many game-changing use cases for AI that go past a gimmick, from visualising sentiment analysis to recognising and assigning queries to the correct person, to providing video-based analytics.
The bottom line: don’t rush your journey into AI, start with small proof-of-concepts that deliver value quickly and provide clear use cases... but start learning by doing now.
